Hockey fans are accustomed to watching the fight for the Stanley Cup each year. The Cup is a long-standing symbol of the blood, sweat, and tears that a team put in for the entire year of competition in the National Hockey League. Give Blood Play Hockey wanted to continue the tradition of a perpetual symbol of greatness.
The Blood Cup was founded at the 1st annual Give Blood Play Hockey in 2007. Teams that win in each division names are engraved forever into this trophy and it is displayed proudly at our home rink in Irvine, CA. The Blood Cup stands for more than just a victory; it is a symbol for the effort of the players of each championship team of their dedication to helping the community through support of CHOC Children’s and the Blood Bank. Teams at Give Blood Play Hockey compete for more than just this perpetual trophy; they compete for a brighter future For The Kids, For The Community, and For an End to Cancer. Congratulations Champions and Thank you for your BLOOD, sweat, and tears.
