Founded in 1998 by the National Hockey League® and the National Hockey League Players' Association, Hockey Fights Cancer™ (HFC) unites the hockey community in support of cancer patients and their families. The initiative gets an assist from players, coaches, officials, equipment managers, front office staff, corporate partners, and fans. Together, the hockey family looks to inspire hope and courage for those who are living with, going through and moving past cancer.
November is the Hockey Fights Cancer Month across the NHL. Each of the 31 NHL Clubs will celebrate their own Hockey Fights Cancer Night during the 2020/2021 season. In addition to other HFC activations and messaging, these games will feature lavender dasher boards and coaches and broadcasters will be wearing HFC ties. Players on the team celebrating their Hockey Fights Cancer Night will wear special Hockey Fights Cancer jerseys and use lavender stick tape during warmups.
Winnipeg Jets Hockey Fights Cancer Night
The Winnipeg Jets Hockey Fights Cancer Night will be determined once the schedule for the 2020/2021 NHL season has been confirmed.
That night, all Winnipeg Jets players will wear special Hockey Fights Cancer jerseys during pre-game warm up. During the game, Jets coaches and broadcasters will wear official lavender-coloured Hockey Fights Cancer ties. The Winnipeg Jets will also convert all their rinkboards and in-game visual media to lavender in order to generate increased awareness for the cause.
JOIN THE FIGHT
There will be a number of ways that Winnipeg Jets fans can support the cause throughout the coming weeks and months. Stay tuned to our official website as well as our social media channels for details.

All Jets Gear locations (Bell MTS Place, Kildonan Place, Polo Park, St. Vital and Bell MTS Iceplex) and TrueNorthShop.com will sell a variety of limited edition Hockey Fights Cancer merchandise, with a portion of the proceeds going to Hockey Fights Cancer.
The hockey community is a family. And, like most families, we all know someone who has been affected by cancer. We encourage you to DOWNLOAD the "I Fight For" sign and use the hashtag #hockeyfightscancer to share your photo on Twitter or Instagram.
All proceeds raised will be directed to CCMF pediatric clinical trials. CCMF funds nearly 50 percent of the cost of clinical trials for children and teens with cancer, making leading-edge treatments available and accessible locally. Manitoba continues to have one of the highest participation rate of pediatric trials in the country, due in large part due to the significant donations CCMF directs to this effort year after year. All funds raised by CCMF, including through the Jets' HFC campaign, stay in our province to benefit patients and their families. Visit cancercarefdn.mb.ca for more information.
