Woodbury Hockey To Donate To Jablonski Fund

As part of an annual cancer research fundraiser, Woodbury will donate to a fund for the paralyzed Minnesota high school hockey player.

For the past few years, and Park high schools have with a friendly competition between the schools stretching to the ice rink.

Once again this year, the two schools are competing to see which can raise more money—with the coach of the losing team wearing the opponent’s jersey during the first period of Saturday’s game.

But against the backdrop of the paralysis of Jack Jablonski—the hockey player who was he took in a Dec. 30 game—Woodbury has decided to use part of the money raised to make a donation to a fund set up for Jablonski’s family.

The annual fundraiser is dubbed C.H.E.C.K. (Coaches Helping Eliminate Cancer in Kids), and 2012 marks the fifth consecutive year of the program.

This year, all Suburban East Conference boys hockey teams are participating in the C.H.E.C.K. fundraiser, according to a notice from Woodbury High School.

The winner of the Woodbury-Park competition will be announced prior to the boys hockey game at 7 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 14, at Cottage Grove Ice Arena.
