SPASH hockey raises money for cancer research
STEVENS POINT — SPASH hockey held their fifth annual Cancer Night at the K.B. Willett Ice Arena on Jan. 8.
While previously known as a “Pink in the Rink” event, with funds raised to support breast cancer patients and research, it was changed to include all forms of cancer. The SPASH players and staff have seen first hand the many types of cancer out there, and one of their very own had battled for a cure.
Montana Zdroik was diagnosed with B cell Lymphoma in July of 2018, and in December found out that she was cancer-free.
Overall, $2,000 was raised and donated to the St. Michaels Oncology Fund, with another $2,000 given to the Zdroik family.
