A little over a year after my son Logan was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes I was thinking of a way to bring our love of hockey and the need to raise awareness and funds to find a cure for this life altering disease. In August of 2014 Logan and I formed an organization, Hockey Fights T1D, and started planning a fundraising event to include an ice hockey game with raffles. Local hockey players made a donation to play in the game and friends and family gathered in support. Items were donated from local businesses and were raffled off to raise additional funds. This event has now become our flagship event, the Fall Freeze. We have also partnered with several AHL and college hockey teams to hold awareness nights with them. In 2016 we launched our first premium hockey jersey.
Our mission is to raise awareness of Type 1 Diabetes via our fundraising and awareness events. We are a 100% volunteer organization that is powered by the generosity of others to keep us going.
