Hockey Fights Cancer

Hockey Fights Cancer is a National Hockey League and National Hockey League Players' Association initiative dedicated to one of hockey's most important fights. The Carolina Hurricanes are proud to participate and assist in raising awareness and showcase the work that our partners are doing to fight cancer.

Each year, the Hurricanes host an awareness night highlighting local cancer organizations, patients, survivors and their family members. Participation spans the entire organization, including players, coaches, broadcasters and executive management, and the Carolina Hurricanes Foundation hosts a special auction. The Hurricanes have donated over $60,000 to cancer organizations through the Hockey Fights Cancer initiative.
