FRAMINGHAM – The Framingham High boys ice hockey team and its fans raised more than $2,500 for the American Cancer Society as part of its Flyers Hockey Fights Cancer event earlier this month.
The Flyers raised $2,689, said Robin Nichols, who oversaw the raffle.
All proceeds from the 50/50 raffle at the game were donated to the American Cancer Society to fund research, provide free programs for people with cancer and their caregivers, advocate for better cancer screenings and treatment, provide education and information for all those who seek it.
Attendees at the game were asked to wear pink or purple to show support for those battling cancer.
Andrew Reynolds created a video, in which the hockey players talk about who they are playing and fighting for. (Watch below)
