We all know someone who has battled cancer. Some of our friends and family may be in the middle of the fight. So often the rest of us feel so helpless wishing there was something we could do to help.

The Quad City Storm and UnityPoint Health Trinity have joined up for the third-annual “Hockey Fights Cancer” ice-painting event. 

From 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Monday, Jan. 31 at the TaxSlayer Center, 1201 River Drive, Moline you can help paint the ice with a name of a loved one who’s been affected by cancer. Lavender paint and brushes will be available for anyone to paint the names of friends and family members who have battled or are currently battling cancer directly on the ice.   

The names will be on the ice for the Storm’s “Hockey Fights Cancer” night game on Saturday, Feb. 5.  

QC Storm players wear special jerseys that night which will be auctioned after the game to raise funds for the UnityPoint Health – Trinity Cancer Center.

If you've ever been to a Storm game to see the names in previous years, you know it can be emotional and impactful to see the display.

Tickets for Hockey Fights Cancer Night and all Storm home games can be purchased at QuadCityStorm.com.
