This past season the boys’ and girls’ hockey teams held a fundraiser for the Randy Shaver Cancer Research and Community Fund. On March 7, Randy Shaver came to BSM to receive a check from both the girls’ and boys’ hockey captains. “It’s fantastic when kids look at doing [something] bigger than themselves,” Shaver said.

Shaver was inspired to start this foundation because of his own experience with stage four Hodgkin’s Disease. Shaver is now cancer free and wanted to make a foundation that extends beyond Hodgkin’s Disease. “We didn’t want to narrow our fundraising to just one type of cancer because it is important to reach out to all cancers,” Shaver said.

The BSM hockey community raised $2,300 for Shaver’s foundation. The boys’ hockey team had a lot of fun taking part in an event like this. “It’s always fun to raise for a good cause like that,” senior captain Jerome Newhouse said.

The hockey fundraiser took place at the Saint Louis Park Rec Center on February 1, when the girls’ faced Holy Angels, followed by the boys’ game against Minnetonka. Many people attended this event including, parents, community members, students, and children.

The teams raised money through Chuck-a-Puck, which is a game that takes place during an intermission where fans buy pucks and throw them on the ice. The puck closest to the center of the ice wins the money. People also donated money to win t-shirts and other prizes outside the rink

This is not the only fundraising event that Shaver holds.“We have about 10 each year, with the golfing event being the biggest one,” Shaver said.
