Jake Dukes 14U AA Hockey Fights Cancer

Jake will be honoring the memories of Grandma, Grampa, & Fred for the 6th Annual Fox Motors Hockey Fights Cancer weekend benefitting the Van Andel Institute Purple Community.

This event has raised over $245,000 since 2016!

What is Hockey Fights Cancer?  An Annual event in partnership with the Purple Community, a fundraising program at Van Andel Institute, a world-class biomedical research and science education facility headquartered in Grand Rapids, Michigan.  With Purple Community, every dollar raised goes directly to the laboratories where scientists are searching for answers for many types of cancers and other diseases including Parkinsons disease.  These Hockey Fights Cancer games are also a celebration in honor of those who are currently battling cancer, have battled cancer, or lost their battle to cancer.
