Minnesota Hockey Fights Cancer is an effort of Minnesota Hockey Charities, DBA which is a 501c(3). Minnesota Hockey Charities exists because of the dedication of our Board of Directors who volunteer their time and effort to support the organization in raising awareness and funds for cancer causes and hockey families in need.
Minnesota Hockey Fights Cancer was founded in 2018 and provides support for all cancer causes.
The mission of Minnesota Hockey Fights Cancer is to energize the hockey community in Minnesota to build awareness and support the fight against cancer.
Associations compete annually for the John Gegen Cup and high schools compete for the Michael Weiss Fight Championship. An award is also given to the Mite Jamboree that raises the most money which goes toward the fight against cancer and raises funds for their association. Each year we also award the top team performance and for individuals that demonstrate superior effort we award the Cap George MVP Award.
To facilitate the competition and fundraising efforts we provide access to a customized online portal and promotion through our marketing channels. For registered games and mite jamborees we provide game pucks, placards, helmet decals, Howie’s Hockey tape and other supplies to help support an experience that builds awareness of the efforts in the fight against cancer.
