The Manitoba Moose host their first-ever Hockey Fights CancerTM (HFC) game on Saturday, Nov. 24 when the team hosts the Iowa Wild. The day features a lavender game presentation, including rinkboards and visual media, to draw more awareness to the cause. Following the game there will be a Moose team poster giveaway and the only full-team Autograph Alley of the season.
The Moose have supported the Winnipeg Jets’ HFC campaign since their return to Winnipeg in 2015. Nov. 24 will mark their first independent campaign in support of a unique charity, Camp Quality Manitoba. Camp Quality is an organization that provides free camp experiences, programming and support for children with cancer and their families, will be the benefactor of the 2018 Moose HFC campaign.
Fans can support Camp Quality Manitoba through the purchase of mystery autographed Manitoba Moose hockey pucks during the game. Following the game, from Dec. 5 to 16, two HFC-themed Moose goalie masks will be part of an online auction at https://auctions.nhl.com with proceeds also going toward the cause. The game’s 50/50 proceeds will be donated to Camp Quality, courtesy of the True North Youth Foundation.
As a non-profit organization, Camp Quality Manitoba runs on the energy of volunteers. New funds raised through the Moose HFC campaign will be essential in supporting young campers, from ages 4 to 18.
Since 1998 Hockey Fights Cancer, a joint initiative of the NHL and NHL Players’ Association, has been uniting the hockey community in support of cancer patients and their families.
