Hockey Fights Cancer Awareness Game Set for Tuesday

RALEIGH, NC – Jon Chase, Director of Community Relations and Promotions for the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes, today announced details surrounding the team’s annual Hockey Fights Cancer Awareness Game on Tuesday, Oct. 25, as the Hurricanes host the Ottawa Senators at the RBC Center at 7 p.m.

Morgan Stone and her father, Jay, will represent the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and perform “Siren Sounder” duties to kick off Hockey Fights Cancer Night. The Canadian national anthem will be performed by Leah Sundheim, in memory of Ernst Sundheim, who passed away from leukemia, and the U.S. national anthem will be sung by Shawn Berigan in honor of her mother, Tere Berigan, who lost her battle with acute lymphoblastic leukemia in 2001.

During the game, fans can visit the Kids ‘N Community Foundation kiosk outside of section 129 to bid on special baskets created by Hurricanes players’ wives and significant others. The money raised from the baskets will benefit one of eight cancer organizations that will have awareness tables on the RBC Center concourse during Tuesday’s game. The Hurricanes will present eight cancer organizations with a special Hockey Fights Cancer gift, and there will be cancer survivors representing I’m Too Young For This, NC Lung Cancer Partnership, Jimmy V Foundation, Rex and Pancreatic Cancer Action Network, riding the Olympia ice resurfacers before the game and during intermissions.

Throughout October, all Hurricanes players will wear Hockey Fights Cancer decals on their helmets. Head Coach Paul Maurice and his staff will be wearing lavender Hockey Fights Cancer ties, as lavender is the official color of cancer awareness. Fans can purchase the HFC tie and other HFC-themed merchandise, at the NHL Shop. Portions of the proceeds from the sales of all HFC merchandise items will benefit Hockey Fights Cancer.

Hockey Fights Cancer is a joint charitable initiative founded in December 1998 by the National Hockey League and National Hockey League Players’ Association. It is supported by players, NHL Member Clubs, NHL Alumni, the NHL Officials’ Association, Professional Hockey Athletic Trainers and Equipment Managers, corporate marketing partners, broadcast partners and fans throughout North America. The goal of Hockey Fights Cancer is to raise money and awareness for national and local organizations involved in cancer care and research, Children’s Hospitals, and player charities. To date, Hockey Fights Cancer has raised more than $12 million.
