On Wednesday, March 4th, MBS sophomore Andrew Low ’22 was featured on a WCBS-2 news story highlighting the charity ice hockey game he created, “Kids Ice Cancer.” The fundraiser, which will benefit The Valerie Fund, will be played at 7 p.m. on Friday, 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 $35,000, but when Low quickly hit $40,000, he raised the bar to $65,000. After more generous donations it went to $100,000 and now the goal is up to $125,000.
“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.
