Hockey Fights Cancer (HFC) was established as a way for the hockey community to come together to fight cancer, a disease that has affected so many individuals in the hockey family and our community in general. This year the Stars' official Hockey Fights Cancer Night will be Thursday, October 18 when the Stars take on the Minnesota Wild.
Hockey Fights Cancer helps raise money and awareness for national and local organizations involved in cancer care and research. The Stars and the NHL have partnered up with several anti-cancer charity partners including the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, the Mary Crowley Cancer Research Center, Susan G. Komen, Pancreatic Cancer Action Network, Movember and Heroes for Children.
Fans are encouraged to wear lavender to the game. The Dallas Stars wives and girlfriends will also be passing out lavender ribbons to the first 5,000 fans at the game and collecting donations at each of the main entrances.
Stars players will be using special tape on their sticks during warm-ups. Fans will have the opportunity to bid on these sticks at the Foundation table during the game.
Stars coaches, broadcasters and executives will be wearing special lavender ties for the game, and look for the Hockey Fights Cancer stickers on the back of all the players’ helmets throughout the month of October.
