Throughout the month of November, the Springfield Thunderbirds and the T-Birds Foundation will be leaders in the fight against cancer. Players from the Thunderbirds will participate by growing facial hair, a symbolic gesture to staying diligent in the fight.
Check back to this page throughout November to learn more about the Hockey Fights Cancer initiative, established by the National Hockey League two decades ago. You will also be able to contribute to the cause by placing a charitable donation to the T-Birds Foundation. In November, cancer research and awareness groups will be the focus.
