Michael Weiss Fight Championship

The Michael Weiss Fight Championship is awarded to the top fundraising high school for funds raised from October through the end of the High School Hockey season.

On November 18, 2020, Michael posted the following message to his Twitter feed, “Reaction when your doctor tells you that your scan is cancer free! #miracleonweiss#puckcancer @MNHockeyFights

This video provided inspiration in a difficult 2020-2021 season and a timely reminder of the reason that we do what we do. Michael’s twitter profile states that he is a husband, dad, teacher, hockey coach and cancer survivor. He should add inspiration to that list.

At the end of the previous season, a donor had provided funding for the purchase of 10 sets of lavender boxing gloves to be the prize for the top high school for the next ten years. Along with the boxing gloves the winning school gets a banner to hang in their arena.

It is our hope that one day the Minnesota Hockey Fights Cancer Michael Weiss Championship banner will be just as prized as any state championship banner.
