SAN ANTONIO (February 26, 2013) – The San Antonio Rampage and the Little Fighter Foundation will host their next Face-Off Against Kids Cancer event at The Magik Theatre on Wednesday, Feb. 27 at 6 p.m., in conjunction with the Theatre for a Change’s theme “Magik is in the Heart, Not the Hair.” The Rampage players and their Face-Off Against Kids Cancer buddies will take in a performance of Rapunzel with a reception following the show.
The play will be the fourth Face-Off Against Kids Cancer event of the season. The Rampage players met their Face-Off Against Kids Cancer buddies for the first time during a pizza and board game party at the Children’s Hospital of San Antonio in November and invited their buddies out to a Rampage game on Dec. 16. On Jan. 23, the Rampage invited their buddies to Funtastic Playland for an evening exploring the 13,000 square foot indoor playground.
Face-Off Against Kids Cancer is a program that pairs Rampage hockey players with children from the Centers for Oncology and Blood Disorders at the Children’s Hospital of San Antonio in either early stages of treatment for pediatric cancer or in remission. Through a series of social events through the season, the Rampage players forge lasting relationships with their respective buddies and look to increase awareness about childhood cancer in the community.
