ABOUT THE 14 FUND
Prior to Blues for Kids, the Blues' charitable efforts were made under The 14 Fund, which honored the legacy of former Blue Doug Wickenheiser.
Wickenheiser scored the game-winning goal in the Monday Night Miracle - one of the greatest moments in franchise history - in 1986.
Unfortunately, Wickenheiser passed away after a battle with cancer in 1999 at the age of 37.
The 14 Fund continues to serve as the Blues' platform for cancer care and awareness initiatives under the Blues for Kids umbrella. These initiatives include the team's Hockey Fights Cancer efforts.
The 14 Fund supports all forms of cancer research - in children and adults alike.
