About Hockey 4 Life

In 2008, South Bend Hockey 4 Life was created by a group of hockey players to raise money in support of a family suffering the loss of one of our own hockey players. Eight years later and it is still raising money for charities and groups, mostly within our community!

Through the years, we have helped several of our fellow hockey players and their families during long term injuries or illnesses. We’re very passionate about helping our immediate and extended communities.

We hope to continue our annual donations to the Hope Ministries, St Margerets, Hospice, The Ronald McDonald House and The South Bend Sled Hockey Team.

We’re proud to announce that Hockey 4 Life Inc. is now officially a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt charitable organization, and donations are tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law. Each year we become stronger and stronger! We hope this year is no different. We need your support to continue the great things that we have done in the past. Without going into a long list of names we would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone that has and will continue to participate, volunteer, and donate. Without your support there could be no Hockey 4 Life. We love having you on our team!

Hockey 4 Life is proud to announce an annual scholarship fund to a current high school Senior who embodies the leadership on the ice and in the community.

Coaches, do you have a graduating senior on your roster who goes above and beyond on and off the ice? Is he dedicated to assisting not only themselves, but others around them? An exceptional person whom embodies a true leader in their community? If so, we want to meet them!

Hockey 4 Life is providing a worthy high school senior currently rostered in the MHSHL a $500.00 scholarship for their freshman year of college. All you have to do is help us find that deserving player.

Hockey 4 Life has been active around St. Joseph County for the past 8 years, assisting with financial and hands on assistance to local families and charities. Each spring, Hockey 4 Life holds an adult hockey tournament to benefit a few local charities in need. This annual tournament has turned into a huge success raising over 10,000.00 every year! Hockey 4 Life is a state registered Non-For Profit which continues to grow year after year. Fortunately, this is where you come in!
