Jets Announce Hockey Fights Cancer Night

Monday, 30.09.2013 / 11:17 AM / News Articles
Winnipeg Jets

The Winnipeg Jets Hockey Club, in conjunction with the National Hockey League, today announced the organization’s efforts for the league-wide initiative Hockey Fights Cancer. The Jets will host Hockey Fights Cancer night at MTS Centre when they take on the Washington Capitals on Tuesday, October 22nd, 2013. Game time is 7:00 p.m. CT.

That night, all Winnipeg Jets players will wear a special-edition lavender Jets jersey during pre-game warm up. Raffle tickets will be sold in the concourse at all seven Jets home games during the month of October for a chance to win one of 35 lavender jerseys. All proceeds from the raffle will benefit the CancerCare Manitoba Foundation.

During the game on October 22nd, Jets coaches and broadcasters will wear the lavender, official Hockey Fights Cancer ties. Additionally, players will continue to support Hockey Fights Cancer by wearing decals on their helmets throughout the month of October. The Winnipeg Jets will also convert all their rink-boards & visual media to lavender on the 22nd in order to generate increased awareness for the fight against cancer.

Jets Gear, the official store of the Winnipeg Jets, will sell a variety of limited edition Hockey Fights Cancer merchandise throughout the month of October.

All proceeds raised throughout the month of October will be directed to CancerCare’s Pediatric Clinical Trials. Currently the Foundation funds 51 percent of the cost of trials for children and teens with cancer here in Manitoba. The participation rates have been increasing and as of last year, Manitoba had the highest participation rate in the country. This has been in large part because of the significant donations CancerCare Manitoba Foundation directs to this effort year after year - all the funds raised by CancerCare Manitoba Foundation stays in our province to benefit Manitobans with cancer and their families.
