The team initiated a special program last season titled “Face-Off Against Kids Cancer” that pairs Rampage players with children from the Centers for Oncology and Blood Disorders at Christus Santa Rosa, who are currently in either early stages of treatment for pediatric cancer or in remission. Through a series of social events that included a pizza and board game party at the hospital, an ice cream social after a Rampage game, a visit to SeaWorld and the San Antonio Rodeo, the program helped Rampage players forge lasting relationships with their respective buddies over the course of last season and hope to perpetuate those bonds this season.
“Face-Off Against Kids Cancer” also acts as a fundraiser. To culminate the program each year, the Rampage create fundraising opportunities, such as jersey auctions, and use the proceeds to benefit Christus Santa Rosa and pediatric cancer support groups in the San Antonio community. During the inaugural “Face-Off Against Kids Cancer” in 2010, the Rampage raised more than $10,000 in an effort to fight childhood cancer.
Originally initiated by the Mississippi Sea Wolves Hockey Club in 2003 and duplicated by the Atlantic City Boardwalk Bullies, the Phoenix RoadRunners, and the Fresno Falcons, “Face-Off Against Kids Cancer” has touched hundreds of lives and raised thousands of dollars.
