The familiar sounds of the goal horn, the smell of fresh ice and a lavender hue at rinks around the NHL – it must be October!
Keeping with tradition, the lavender Hockey Fights Cancer logos will pop up on player helmets, rink boards, and on special ties throughout October to commemorate Hockey Fights Cancer Awareness Month. Through Hockey Fights Cancer, the NHL and the NHLPA are committed to raising funds and awareness for hockey’s most important fight.
The Edmonton Oilers Community Foundation’s Rally Against Cancer fundraiser adds a bit of Oil Country flair to the Hockey Fights Cancer initiative. Spearheaded by the Oilers Ladies, Rally Against Cancer gives fans the opportunity to purchase a unique Oilers item in support of a worthy cause. On October 24, as the Oilers take on the Washington Capitals, fans will have the opportunity to purchase limited-edition, Oilers mittens for $20 a pair with funds being directed to Kids with Cancer’s Brainworks program and the Edmonton Oilers Community Foundation.

Home is where the heart is and here in Oil Country, this couldn’t ring more true. Proud supporters of Oil Country, the Edmonton Oilers Community Foundation (EOCF) has been contributing to our community’s heart beat since 2001. With a focus on programs that support education, health and wellness for youth, the Oilers Foundation is deeply committed to its goal of helping to enrich lives and eradicate social issues while finding long-term solutions to improve our home where we live, work and play.
Since its inception in 2001, the EOCF has contributed over $30 million to more than 2,700 charities, community groups and minor hockey programs. Thanks to the generosity of our valued hockey fans, the Foundation gives back in excess of $2.5 million annually to charities and minor hockey groups throughout Norther Alberta.
The EOCF will continue its legacy of giving back in Northern Alberta and with the Oilers move into Rogers Place, the Oilers Foundation has plenty to look forward to in the heart of downtown Edmonton.
