Through inSports Foundation, the Concordia College Men’s and Women’s hockey teams have recently came up with a creative way to give back to their community. Each team will be sponsoring a “Chuck-a-Puck” night at a home game to raise money for the Concordia Dance Marathon.
The Chuck-a-Puck events will allow fans to buy pucks and have the opportunity to toss them closest to the center ice dot in-between the 2nd and 3rd periods. Prizes will be awarded to the winners, in appreciation to supporting the Children’s Miracle Network. It will be $2 per puck, or $5 for 3 pucks.
The student- lead “Dance Marathon” is a nationwide movement in which over 150 campuses throughout the nation work to raise money for the Children’s Miracle Network hospital in their community; Concordia Dance Marathon will be raising funds for the Sanford Children’s Hospital in Fargo. This fundraiser is a yearlong event and ends with a 12 hour even in March to celebrate the children and families who experienced the miracles from the fundraising. 100% of the funds raised go directly to these children and families in need. All For The Kids.
The dates of the games are as follows:
Men’s Game January 24, 2014 7:00 pm vs. Augsburg
Women’s Game January 31, 2014 7:00 pm vs. Hamline
@ Moorhead Sports Center
The teams will be wearing yellow laces to support the Children’s Miracle Network, We hope to see you they’re cheering on the teams and helping out the cause! There will also be Herbalife protein shakes being made from Island Fusion in addition to the chuck-a-puck station. All proceeds will go to the Concordia Dance Marathon.
