Once again, MBS sophomore Andrew Low ’22 is using his passion for ice hockey to help raise money for cancer charities. This year, he is organizing an all-star hockey game, “Kids Ice Cancer,” to be played at 7 p.m. on March 27th at The Rink at American Dream in East Rutherford.
Low, who lost both paternal grandparents and his dog to cancer within a six month span in 2016, raised more than $14,000 for St. Jude Children’s Hospital last year through an ice hockey game at Twin Oaks. This year, he will be raising money for The Valerie Fund after visiting one of their cancer centers.
“When I visited Morristown Medical Center and saw the kids laying there both brave and scared at the same time, I knew I had to help,” said Low, who created his own website for Kids Ice Cancer.
The original fundraising goal for this year’s hockey game was set at $50,000, but when Low quickly hit $40,000, he raised the bar to $65,000. The true goal, his mother says is $100,000 for the event.
“That it’s kids helping kids is the greatest thing of all,” said Wendy Low.
Admission for the ice hockey game on March 27th at The Rink at American Dream is free.
