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.

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 Preds have raised over four hundred thousand dollars for pediatric cancer research at Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt. The organization dedicates two games each season to benefit their 365 Shea and Pekka Fund which goes directly to find new treatments for kids with cancer and hopefully, ultimately, a cure.
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.
