The Canadian Cancer Society (CCS) is a national, community-based organization whose mission is to eradicate cancer and enhance the quality of life of people living with cancer. Thanks to our donors and volunteers, CCS has the most impact, against the most cancers, in the most communities in Canada.
Since its inception in 1998, Hockey Fights Cancer™ – a joint initiative by the National Hockey League (NHL) and National Hockey League Players’ Association (NHLPA) – has raised more than $18 million to support national and local cancer research institutions, children’s hospitals, player charities, and local charities. Lavender, the official color of Hockey Fights Cancer, represents all cancers and will be featured prominently throughout the campaign. To join the conversation, use the official hashtag #HockeyFightsCancer.
Community hockey teams across Canada can join with the Canadian Cancer Society and the NHL in Hockey Fights Cancer. Teams can participate by holding a fundraiser during a game or tournament.
