The 3rd Annual “Parkinson’s Sucks” Hockey Mixer will be on Sunday, August 6, 2017 and registration is now open!


The Parkinson’s Sucks fundraiser is a charity event hosted annually at Rocket Ice Arena in Bolingbrook.  It features a raffle and co-ed “pack the bench” style mixed level hockey game.


100% of the proceeds are donated to the Midwest Chapter of the American Parkinson's Disease Association.


In our first year hosting the event we raised approx. $1,725 and last year we raised $3,150.  This year our goal is to exceed last year’s donation and we need your participation and help to do it!


Due to the past success of the event and Rocket Ice Arena’s generous donation of ice, this year we are considering expanding to two back-to-back games!
