Donation will help prostate cancer research at University Illinois College of Medicine

Rockford, Ill. – For the second straight year, the Rockford IceHogs teamed up with Brovember, Inc. during November to raise money and awareness for prostate cancer research and men’s health. Earlier today, the IceHogs presented a donation of $10,500 to the University of Illinois College of Medicine in Rockford to help continue prostate cancer research.

Throughout November, the IceHogs accepted donations to the cause while IceHogs players helped raise awareness by growing out their facial hair. The team also wore special Ugly Christmas Sweater jerseys on Nov. 27, and proceeds from the silent auction of those jerseys were added to the donation.
