(Stevens Point, WI) –The UW-Stevens Point Men’s Hockey Team, Ministry Health Care and the Saint Michael’s Foundation celebrate five years of “Putting a Check to Cancer.”

When the Pointers take the ice against UW-Eau Claire on Friday, February 14, at K.B. Willett Arena, they will be wearing special edition cancer awareness jerseys and all proceeds from a silent auction of the jerseys will benefit the Breast Care Center Fund at Saint Michael’s Foundation.

In its first four years, Put a Check to Cancer has raised more than $16,000 to assist local cancer patients thanks to the support of Pointer hockey fans to the Saint Michael’s Foundation.

New this year is the ability to bid on the jerseys in advance of the event via an online auction. With players from 13 states and Canada on this year’s Pointers roster, this will expand this event to family members and friends coast to coast.

The Breast Care Center Fund supports patients, programs and the initiatives of the Breast Care Center at Ministry Saint Michael’s Hospital. Gifts made to Saint Michael’s Foundation’s Breast Care Center Fund will help to ensure patients and their families continue to receive quality and compassionate health care for which Ministry Saint Michael’s Hospital has been known for the past 100 years.
