The Michigan Amateur Hockey Association (MAHA) is very proud to support the 2021 October Saves Goalie Challenge!
Since 2014, the October Saves Goalie Challenge is an all-volunteer 501 (c)(3) charitable organization raising money to fight cancer during Breast Cancer Awareness month. The concept is simple - ask goalies to gather pledges from family, friends and teammates for each save they make in the month of October. To date, the goalies of October Saves have raised over $1.5 million dollars in the fight against cancer. Now it's YOUR turn!
The list of participating goalies in Michigan is already growing! Goalies can register now at www.octobersaves.org to get started. Once registered, goalies can begin collecting pledges or donations from family, friends and teammates. In addition, there are some great prizes & incentives to keep you motivated all month long!
Have a participating goaltender you'd like to support with a pledge or donation? Simply look up your goalie at www.octobersaves.org and make your pledge or donation in his / her name!
Whether you are a participating goalie or donor, you will find all the tools for success on the October Saves Resource Page!
SAMPLE LETTERS - You will find a letter template to be customized and sent to potential donors, as well as a letter template to be sent to your club or organization, asking for their participation. Inspire donors to support you!
PINK BRICK WALL BANNER - An eye-catching banner to download and print for your local rink! Place this in a high-traffic area of your local facility to create awareness of the October Saves campaign. You can track your progress and motivate other goalies, teammates and families to get involved by donating!
