HOCKEY FIGHTS CANCER
Hockey Fights Cancer™ is an initiative founded in December 1998 by the National Hockey League and the National Hockey League Players' Association to raise money and awareness for hockey's most important fight. To date, through the Hockey Fights Cancer initiative, the NHL's US and Canadian charitable foundations and NHL supporters and fans have donated more than $15 million to support national and local cancer research institutions, children's hospitals, player charities and local cancer organizations. The Hockey Fights Cancer program is also a component of the NHL's "Biggest Assist Happens Off the Ice" campaign - the League's long-standing tradition of addressing important social issues in North America and around the world.
Every October, teams throughout the NHL highlight the Hockey Fights Cancer initiative, raising awareness and funds to assist in the ongoing fight against cancer.
In addition to wearing Hockey Fights Cancer helmet stickers throughout the month of October, the Ottawa Senators will host its annual Hockey Fights Cancer Awareness Night this season on Oct. 28, 2015 versus the Calgary Flames.
Hockey Fights Cancer autographed and non-autographed merchandise will be available for sale including Hockey Fights Cancer hats and ties, along with Reflections on a Hockey Season photo books at the Gate 1 and 2 entrances of Canadian Tire Centre, with all proceeds from the sale going to support Hockey Fights Cancer.
