“For the league-wide initiative, the Ducks celebrate Hockey Fights Cancer Night to raise awareness for the Jessie Rees Foundation. The interactive evening will encourage fan participation in a variety of ways including the creation of “I Fight For”cards recognizingloved ones affected by cancer.”
What is the Jessie Rees Foundation?
The Jessie Rees Foundation ensures every kid fighting cancer has the support to Never Ever Give Up (NEGU) and they provide children in hospitals around the world with fun-filled JoyJars as a way to send hope and joy to children fighting cancer.
What are JoyJars?
JoyJars are filled with toys and games to help pass the time in the hospital. The Anaheim Ducks are calling all fans in attendance to help fill these jars by participating in a JoyDrive and bringing “crazy socks for courageous kids” that are fun socks for the kids to enjoy. Drop off locations will be at South and Northeast doors.
The mission for the Jessie Rees Foundation is to ensure every kid fighting cancer has the support to Never Ever Give Up! They fulfill their mission by CONNECTING with families, bringing AWARENESS to their stories, offering them helpful RESOURCES and sending the entire family continual doses of ENCOURAGEMENT throughout their journey.
