Hockey Fights Cancer

Every year during the month of February, Southside Ice Arena and Fox Motors Hockey club partner with the Purple Community  to raise awareness, support, and fundraising for the Van Andel Institute's fight against cancer.  At each Hockey Fights Cancer purple game, our players skate for their loved ones who have survived, are fighting, or have lost their fight to Cancer.  

We are proud to share that since 2016, we have fundraised over $192,000!  We are so proud to partner with such an amazing community and come together off-the ice for a great cause.
