9th Annual Hockey-Thon: March 23 & 24, 2013
Presented by Links for Life & Bakersfield Condors
After former Condors/ Fog defenseman Kevin Barrett lost his mother to inflammatory breast cancer, he came up with the idea for the Hockey-Thon, an ice hockey marathon running around the clock in which local players could participate to raise money for charity.
The Hockey-Thon is comprised of a 24 hour hockey marathon for participants of all ages and skill levels, includes a Condors game and highlighted by a fun filled Condors Alumni game featuring former Condors wearing specially designed pink “breast cancer awareness” jerseys that will be auctioned off after the game.
Barrett joined forces with the Condors to create the Hockey-Thon, which is now in its 9th season and has been an overwhelming success, raising over $305,000 in the event’s history. Links for Life, a local breast cancer resource center, is once again the recipient of the proceeds raised.
To participate in the Hockey-Thon, players can register by filling out the form below, then print out the donations sheet and begin collecting pledges.
A minimum of $250 is required to play. All participants will play in several games during the event and have the satisfaction of fighting for a noble cause.
Registration deadline is March 15, 2013
Hockey-Thon will kick-off with a party at 1:oopm on Saturday, March 23 at SJCH Ice Sports Center
