2021 Kraken Hockey Fights Cancer presented by Virginia Mason Franciscan Health and Sports Radio 950 KJR
We've teamed up with our friends at Virginia Mason Franciscan Health and the Seattle Kraken to help raise awareness for Kraken Hockey Fights Cancer, which unites the hockey community in support of cancer patients and their families, and inspire hope and courage for those living with, going through and moving past cancer.
Virginia Mason Franciscan Health and Sports Radio 950 KJR want you to make a play for your health and get screened early and often. With November being Kraken Hockey Fights Cancer month, we are raising donations for our community to help fight cancer.
Visit vmfh.org/hockeyfightscancer to donate and bid to win Kraken tickets and a Zamboni ride, and VIP concert experiences for Billie Eilish and Bad Bunny at Climate Pledge Arena.
