The Penguins are proud to support the league-wide Hockey Fights Cancer (HFC) program.
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 Hockey Fights Cancer Month across the NHL. Each of the NHL Clubs will join forces again this year to create awareness and raise funds to fight cancer.
At the league level, Hockey Fights Cancer will help the American Cancer Society, Canadian Cancer Society, and Movember Foundation provide a better quality of life for patients, caregivers, and their families.
All funds raised by the Penguins for Hockey Fights Cancer (HFC) during the 2020-21 season will benefit The Mario Lemieux Foundation and the UPMC Hillman Cancer Center in Pittsburgh. Stay tuned for HFC fundraising information once the games begin.
