The College at Brockport will host the sixth annual Saves For a Cure game on Friday, February 15th when Morrisville comes to Tuttle north.

Saves for a Cure is a non-profit, charitable organization started by Todd Sheridan ('11), a former Brockport goalie -- and one of Brockport's all-time greatest players --  and the College's all-time leader in goals-against average (3.07), career wins (29) and saves percentage (.904). He also holds the 4 best single season goals-against-averages for Brockport.

In 2005 Todd was diagnosed with cancer, given a 70% chance of survival and told he’d never play hockey again. Todd beat cancer and the odds and then had quite the career at Brockport, as made evident by his career numbers and the team's only 2 playoff seasons -- both of which occurred while he was in net.

With his success story as its backdrop, Saves For a Cure oversees a variety of fundraisers, including the annual Saves For a Cure game. All proceeds from any Saves For a Cure event or activity go to the children’s cancer clinic at Strong Memorial Hospital.

The highlight of the game is an auction whereby fans can bid on the special jerseys being worn during the game. The auction has begun and will continue through 8 am (Eastern), Sunday, February 17, 2013. The winners will be listed on the auction web page and will be notified via email. Bids will be updated as often as possible on the auction page.
