Hockey Fights Cancer

Since its inception in 1998, Hockey Fights Cancer – a joint initiative by the National Hockey League (NHL) and National Hockey League Players’ Association (NHLPA) – has resulted in donations of more than $18 million to support national and local cancer research institutions, children’s hospitals, player charities, and local charities.

Hockey Fights Cancer is also a program of both the National Hockey League Foundation (in the US) and NHL Foundation (in Canada). Lavender, the official color of Hockey Fights Cancer, represents all cancers and will be featured prominently throughout the campaign. To join the conversation, use the official hashtag #HockeyFightsCancer.

Through the help of the Canadian and American Cancer Societies, the Hockey Fights Cancer initiative looks to improve the lives of those families currently battling a form of cancer. Join the fight by making a donation at
