On Wednesday, December 13, at 7:00 PM at Howe Arena, the Central Trojans and West Titans will face off in the inaugural “Hockey Fights Cancer Game” to benefit Michigan-based Van Andel Institute’s cancer research programs. Players from both sides of the blue line will be fighting for more than a Big North Conference victory, they will be honoring friends or family that have been affected by cancer.
Each player will be wearing a special pink and purple game jersey with the name of the person they are skating/playing for on their back. Additional efforts to raise money for the cause will take place at the rink as well as “Hockey Fights Cancer” t-shirts that will be available for purchase online (order deadline is December 1) at this link: T-Shirt Order Form. Come out and watch fierce hometown rivals battle on the ice and battle against cancer!
