The Stick it to Cancer Hockey Tournament is a benefit to support the fight against breast cancer. We started this event in 1999. Each team volunteers a combined total of six hours, and all referees donate their time to tournament operations, resulting in an even larger donation to cancer research.

Thank you to all of our participating teams! The 2017 Tournament was a huge success and we proudly made a donation in the amount of $46,245 to the Masonic Cancer Center, University of Minnesota.
