As a team, we get into a lot of fights throughout the year, but none as important as the fight against cancer. We’ve teamed up with UCHealth to bring Eagles fans another great Hockey Fights Cancer Night in Northern Colorado. As part of Hockey Fights Cancer Night, UCHealth and the Colorado Eagles are proud to be offering special Gameday Experiences for Cancer Survivors and their families.
We’ll be distributing 3,000 foam LED light sticks for the first 3,000 fans in attendance. The light sticks have three different light-up settings and shine bright with Hockey Fights Cancer lavender. Doors for Hockey Fights Cancer Night will open at 6:00pm and the foam light sticks will be handed out at the Budweiser Events Center main entrance only.
Once you’re inside UCHealth has provided ‘I Fight For’ cards to be filled out and personalized by fans to show their support in Hockey’s most important fight. ‘I Fight For’ cards will be placed on every seat in the Budweiser Events Center, extras can be found on the Bud Light Balcony. Specially designed Hockey Fights Cancer post cards are available to fill out at the Water Valley Tap and the Eagles Merchandise stand that will be delivered to the UCHealth Cancer Center. You can take your ‘I Fight For’ cards to our Hockey Fights Cancer photobooth on the Bud Light Balcony, where fans can take pictures with an Eagles player and have them printed out at the game.
Throughout the game UCHealth and the Colorado Eagles will be honoring cancer survivors, their supporters, and anyone that has been touched by this destructive disease through unique Gameday Experiences such as:
- A Special Hockey Fights Cancer Puck Drop Ceremony
- Mini Mic Check with Pediatric Cancer Warriors.
- A Big American Flag Presentation with Cancer Survivors at Center Ice during the National Anthem.
- Special Hockey Fights Cancer Zamboni Riders
- Survivors & Supporters Big Ribbon Presentation
- Special UCHealth Fan Fit Challenge
- And much more!
The lavender jerseys worn on Friday and Saturday’s games will be auctioned off on Saturday, January 13th, with the proceeds benefitting the Colorado Eagles Foundation and the Patient Assistance Fund at the UCHealth Cancer Center. You can bid on these special jersey’s by visiting the Water Valley Tap on the main concourse during Saturday’s game.
You can get all your special Hockey Fights Cancer Merchandise, including hats, shirts, and jerseys at the Eagles Merchandise Stand! The Eagles Merchandise Stand is located behind Section J along the main concourse.
