In honor of this year’s 25th anniversary of Hockey Fights Cancer, AstraZeneca is also proud to present the season-long NHL Hat Trick Challenge.

With a $5,000 donation for every hat trick this season, AstraZeneca has officially reached its donation goal of $500,000 to the Hockey Fights Cancer Fund of the V Foundation for Cancer Research.

AstraZeneca’s bold ambition is to one day eliminate cancer as a cause of death.

AstraZeneca follows the science to understand cancer and all its complexities to discover, develop and deliver life-changing medicines to patients. AstraZeneca knows no one organization can achieve this ambition alone and is proud to partner with the NHL, NHLPA and the V Foundation for Cancer Research through the Hockey Fights Cancer initiative to face-off against cancer and collectively support those living with and touched by cancer.

While body checking gives players an advantage on the ice, off the ice, it can be a crucial defensive tactic to help stay ahead of cancer. Now it's your turn to Get Body Checked Against Cancer. Talk to your doctor about your risk factors and available cancer screenings that are right for you.
