Winnipeg Jets announce details for Hockey Fights Cancer Initiative

The Winnipeg Jets Hockey Club today announced the organization’s efforts in conjunction with the National Hockey League’s 14th consecutive season supporting the Hockey Fights Cancer initiative. The Jets home game against the Carolina Hurricanes tomorrow, October 22 at 6:00 pm will be Hockey Fights Cancer night at MTS Centre.
 
During the game, Jets coaches and broadcasters will wear the lavender, official Hockey Fights Cancer ties, while additional Jets staff will wear lavender and Hockey Fights Cancer pins. Additionally, players will continue to support Hockey Fights Cancer by wearing decals on their helmets for the month of October. As well, the Winnipeg Jets advertising partners will convert all their rink boards to lavender, to create more recognition this cause.
 
Fans can help support Hockey Fights Cancer numerous ways throughout the night. Any purchase made at Jets Gear or Jets Gear booths throughout the concourse will allow fans to add $1 to their purchase to support Hockey Fights Cancer. As well, fans at the game are able to donate $5 to support Hockey Fights Cancer by texting Jets to 45678. There will also be numerous donation tables set-up throughout the concourse where fans can make a donation and be entered to win Winnipeg Jets prizing.
 
Hockey Fights Cancer will donate to The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society to fund an LLS portfolio of pediatric cancer research grants. Hockey Fights Cancer’s grant to Prostate Cancer Canada will be used to fund research into the prevention, detection and treatment of prostate cancer, leading one step closer to a cure. ZERO - The Project to End Prostate Cancer will use its donation to provide free mobile testing in select markets and fund several research grants to medical centers and hospitals. Hockey Fights Cancer’s contribution to the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network will be used to co-sponsor innovative research programs, helping the organization to meet its goal to double the survival rate for pancreatic cancer by 2020. In addition, Hockey Fights Cancer will distribute $5,000 to each NHL club to support local cancer organizations in their respective markets. The Winnipeg Jets have chosen to donate $5,000 to CancerCare Manitoba.
