CEDAR PARK, Texas – The Texas Stars, American Hockey League affiliate of the NHL’s Dallas Stars, announced today their Pucks for Prostates campaign with HealthTronics during the 2014-15 regular season raised a total of $12,900 for the fight against prostate cancer.
The money will be donated to ZERO – The End of Prostate Cancer, which sponsors a number of run/walk events nationally to raise funds for research, action and education in the fight against prostate cancer. During the 2014-15 regular season, HealthTronics and the Texas Stars each pledged to make a $50 donation for each goal scored by the Stars during a home game. The team finished with 129 goals at Cedar Park Center this season, resulting in $6,450 donations from the Texas Stars and HealthTronics.
“Raising awareness and supporting patients and families affected by cancer is an important cause,” said Danielle Barone, Texas Stars Foundation Director. “HealthTronics has been a great partner to work with and we’re thrilled to be able to contribute.”
Russell Newman, President of HealthTronics added, "We were honored to partner with the Texas Stars to help create awareness about prostate cancer. Pucks for Prostates was a fun way to raise important funds for life-saving research and we were excited to be a part of it."
