Skate For A Cure
“It’s great to be able to come out as a family and help support such a worthwhile cause," said Moe Lemay.
Canuck fan Michael Cuccione inspired the Skate For A Cure after his passing in 2001. Michael battled cancer throughout his young life and during that time, dedicated his time to raising money to support research into finding a cure for childhood cancer. From this dedication to “Making a Difference” the Michael Cuccione Foundation was started.
Through the courage and strength of his younger brother Steve, and the idea of Steve’s hockey coach, Skate For A Cure was created. In the first year the skate raised $5000 for the Michael Cuccione Foundation and has had continued success.
This exciting fundraiser encourages kids of all ages to get involved in raising funds to find a cure for childhood cancer. On-ice sessions are awarded to kids who raise a minimum of $150 and those who raise $25 are able to participate in off ice activities held at GM Place.
