For Patients and Families
Hockey Fights Cancer Night
Support the Nashville Predators as they battle the St. Louis Blues and pediatric cancer on Saturday, October 26 at 7 p.m. at Bridgestone Arena.
The Nashville Predators raise funds for a pediatric cancer research fund through a portion of ticket sales for the Hockey Fights Cancer game nights, silent auctions, and fan donations.
Thirteen-year-old Bryson Randolph was our last child ambassador. He dropped the first puck at the game.
For more about Bryson and the annual Hockey Fights Cancer Night watch this video on the PredsTV channel.
An ongoing partnership between the Nashville Predators and Children's Hospital
Nashville's professional hockey team, the Nashville Predators, has scored several assists in the fight against childhood cancer.
Since 2008, the National Hockey League team has raised funds for an endowment for pediatric cancer research at Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt. The Predators dedicate two games each season to Hockey Fights Cancer. A portion of the ticket proceeds benefit the Nashville Predators Pediatric Cancer Research Fund at Children's Hospital.
The funds help Children's Hospital researchers work to identify cures and better treatments for childhood cancer. In addition to their fundraising efforts, the team also brings top players and mascot Gnash to the hospital several times a year. They visit room-to-room with patients to sign autographs and take photos as well as spend time listening to patients' stories.
Children's Hospital is grateful for this important relationship with the Nashville Predators.
