If Hockey Won't Fight Cancer, Hockey Fans Will : The Hockey Writers:
A great cause intiated by my colleague at The Hockey Writers, Ross Bonander who is also a healthcare journalist.
"The other day I wrote “Who Fights Cancer in a Lockout?” at Overtime, noting that should the lockout cancel games in October, it also cancels the biggest charity initiative of the NHL season, “Hockey Fights Cancer” (HFC). This means that the league, the players, and the fans won’t take part in the league-wide initiative, resulting in about $1 million not going to cancer charities this year.
Well if the NHL won’t do it, and the NHLPA can’t do it, then we the fans should.
To that end, I’ve created a grassroots fundraising team with the Livestrong Foundation entitled “Hockey Fans Fight Cancer.”
100 % of donations go to Livestrong.
