Hockey fights pediatric cancer

Published on March 17th, 2022 by Christina Echegaray.

The Nashville Predators hockey team, longtime supporters of Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt and its programs, recently presented the hospital with the proceeds raised throughout the year from the team’s 365 Pediatric Cancer Fund presented by Twice Daily.

During Hockey Fights Cancer month, the Nashville Predators Foundation, empowered by SmileDirectClub, recognized the $335,000.21 in donations and in-kind contributions raised.

Also, the team held its fall Hockey Fights Cancer game Nov. 13, 2021, to raise funds to support childhood cancer initiatives at Children’s Hospital.

The 365 Fund, which was created during the 2012-13 season by recently retired goaltender Pekka Rinne and former captain Shea Weber, has now donated more than $3.6 million in cash and in-kind contributions to the life-changing pediatric cancer research that takes place at Children’s Hospital.
