The Rockford IceHogs donated $7,500 to Brovember, Inc., a local nonprofit that raises awareness about prostate cancer and men’s health, during the 2018-19 season through funds raised during Hockey Fights Cancer initiatives during the month of November and the team’s annual Bowl-a-Thon in March.
IceHogs Director of Business Operations Mike Peck presented the check to Brovember, Inc. founder David Armstrong and Dr. Ramaswamy Kalyanasundaram, Dr. Gnanasekar Munirathinam and their students of the University of Illinois College of Medicine.
Brovember, Inc. has developed numerous initiatives to raise funds for cancer research and help establish local healthcare programs. Along with its successful “beard-a-thon” fundraiser each November, the organization also recently expanded its outreach to create a Brovember U.S. Endowment with the University of Illinois College of Medicine.
