UNO Hockey Presents Methodist Hospital Foundation With $10,000 Check to Help Patients

Published: April 28, 2023

UNO Hockey raised $10,403 through its recent online jersey auction benefitting the Leap-For-A-Cure Foundation. The money, which was presented to Methodist Hospital Foundation, went toward high-tech therapy equipment for patients on Methodist Hospital’s Acute Rehab Unit, including those who may be recovering from stroke as well as those undergoing therapy for brain cancer, brain trauma or brain surgery.

A handful of UNO Hockey players got to try out some of the new equipment that was purchased for the unit, and they even spent some time visiting with patients – many who happen to be BIG Maverick hockey fans J.

Leap-For-A-Cure’s mission is to raise awareness of brain cancer, with the goal of providing education and diagnostic treatment options for brain cancer and brain trauma patients and their families. To date, Leap-for-a-Cure has raised more than $1 Million to fund equipment, technology and resources for Methodist patients.
