MARQUETTE, Michigan (WLUC) – A group of hockey players helped raise money to help fight cancer.

This was the fifth year for Stick it to Cancer.

A total of 15 teams from all over UP, Lower Michigan and Wisconsin played in the Lakeview Arena on Friday and Saturday.

All proceeds are shared between Cancer Care of Marquette County and a resident undergoing cancer treatment.

Northern Michigan University hockey players were umpires for the event.

“It’s always good to give back to the community and they do so much for us that the least we can do to shoot for them,” said Connor Marritt, Northern Michigan University hockey player.

“This is such a hockey community and there haven’t been any adult tournaments in a while,” said Barbara Salmela, Stick it to Cancer Organizer. “It’s just nice when it’s local.”

The championship games will be played on Sunday, September 26th at 10 am and 11 am. Admission is free, but donations are accepted.
