Madison, Wis. – The University of Wisconsin Hockey program hosts their fourth annual Face-Off Against Cancer game which honors the local cancer efforts made at the University of Wisconsin and the UW Carbone Cancer Center on Saturday, January 18 versus Michigan State at the Kohl Center.

The game will feature a first intermission presentation recognizing the University of Wisconsin’s 2019 Ride Scholars who are physicians and researchers identified for their groundbreaking cancer research discoveries and patient treatment methods. The Ride Scholar Class of 2019 will be presented with over $400,000 to advance their cancer initiatives. The Scholars will join a prestigious group of over thirty other University of Wisconsin-Madison doctors identified below who were previously recognized as Ride Scholars since the inception of The Ride in 2016.

“UW has the only comprehensive cancer center in the state and our hockey program is honored to recognize the local efforts made in advancing the outlook of cancer treatment. We’re proud to host our Face-Off Against Cancer game to recognize our medical community and all those affected by this disease.” 

                                                                     Tony Granato, Head Coach, Wisconsin Men’s Hockey

The Ride is an annual bicycle fundraiser that occurs each September and powers 100% of all rider-raised funds to the brightest minds, ideas and technologies at the University of Wisconsin-Madison to help write the story that ends cancer. The mission began in 2016 by University of Wisconsin Drs. Paul Harari and Deric Wheeler in an effort to energize the community and accelerate cancer research and patient treatment initiatives. To date, The Ride has raised over $1.2 Million of which 100% has gone directly to support the most promising research and technologies. Registration for The Ride 2020 opens mid-March at TheRideUW.org.

Wisconsin Hockey’s Face-Off Against Cancer game provides an opportunity for Badger fans and advocates in the fight against cancer to enjoy an evening of fun on Saturday, January 18 as the Badgers host Michigan State at the Kohl Center.
