Raising Money and Awareness for The Cure Starts Now

Please join us at the Merrill Fay Arena on January 25th at 4:30pm for an evening of family fun, community support and great hockey! The Wolves host in-state rival Seacoast Spartans of Exeter, NH in a pivotal Eastern Hockey League matchup. More importantly though, the New England Wolves have once again dedicated one of their home games to celebrating the memory of John Bradley Thompson and raising awareness and research funding for The Cure Starts Now.

The Cure Starts Now focuses on the Homerun Cure to all cancers by concentrating our research funding efforts on one of the deadliest forms of cancer, DIPG. With over $13.8 million in pediatric brain cancer research funding to date, you can rest assured that 100% of your donation, after credit card processing, will go directly to innovative research. Please join us in funding crucial research to save our youngest of warriors.

The Wolves have held the JBT game since the 2015-16 season, when the Wolves defeated the Vermont Lumberjacks 8-6 in the first ever event. They raised nearly $5,000.00 for the Cure Starts Now at that game, and it has grown ever since, in large part due to the introduction of the “Not- So- Mini One on One”, a shootout in between periods featuring local heros to raise money for chances to win the coveted JBT Shootout Trophy. To date, the JBT game has raised $80,000 for the Cure Starts Now foundation, all in the memory of John Bradley Thompson, a local Gilford boy who endured a courageous battle with DIPG, an inoperable form of Brain Cancer.
