*We have switched fundraising platforms! You'll notice a new experience when making donations. All of the donations currently received on our old platform will be updated and reflected in the new MobileCause system. You will not be charged twice. Thank you for your support.

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 2018 Tournament was a huge success and we proudly made a donation in the amount of $61,009 to the Masonic Cancer Center, University of Minnesota.
