Local youth hockey teams and hockey fans across Canada can join HFC Assist and support Hockey Fights Cancer™, a partnership between the National Hockey League, National Hockey League Players Association and the Canadian Cancer Society (CCS), American Cancer Society and the V Foundation to raise funds to help those living with, going through or moving past cancer in our communities -- just like their favourite NHL teams and players.
Getting started is easy:
- Register your team online. We will equip you with all the online tools you need to fundraise and spread the word.
- Designate a game as a Hockey Fights Cancer™ game. Create awareness by having players and coaching staff wear different jerseys, ties, and more. Raise funds by auctioning the special attire or hosting in-arena events.
- Face off against or challenge other teams to register. Create friendly competition within your league by challenging your rival teams to join the fundraising.
Plus, from September through April, participants can earn exclusive rewards by hosting their very own Hockey Fights Cancer™ fundraisers!
Nearly half of Canadians are expected to be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime, and the hockey community is no exception. Funds raised through the Hockey Fights Cancer™ partnership provides compassionate support services when they are needed most such as accommodations during cancer treatment, transportation to and from appointments and reliable, trusted information to make life better for people with cancer.
