Founded in 2005 by Candice Arnold, Hockey Fights MS is a unique organization whose mission is to raise money for research into the cause, cure, and treatment of multiple sclerosis and to help improve the lives of those living with multiple sclerosis by supporting local rehabilitation centers.
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system that disrupts the flow of information within the brain, and between the brain and body. According to the latest study, approximately 900,000 people in the US have MS, an increase of 500K people in the last decade. Learn more here.
The Hockey Fights MS tournaments take place in 5 different states (Vermont, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, Maryland, and New Hampshire) and are currently open to adult men and women players of all ages and abilities from over 30 different states and 3 different countries. The number of participants, volunteers and spectators continue to increase each year, reflecting the growing support from local communities.
TENS OF THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS OF DONATIONS ARE MADE THROUGH EACH TOURNAMENT WE HOLD
We are always looking for volunteers to help us during the tournaments. Volunteers are vital to the success of our tournaments and provide an excellent opportunity for high school students to fulfill community service requirements.
