Paint the Ice:
Hockey Fights Cancer
February 6th


Our friends at the Quad City Storm opened up the ice to cancer fighters and their families for Paint the Ice.

The Taxslayer Center was open all day, and the Storm provided paints to those who wanted to put the names of their loved one on the ice.

Our awesome volunteers braved the very cold Midwest winter weather to add the names of some of our Ewing's family.


We were very happy to have the opportunity to honor our patients' courage, and to bring attention to Ewing's incidence in the Quad Cities Area.

Thanks to Sean Flynn Photography for the amazing drone photo!

Quad City Storm Nick Teddy Night: Super Hero Night
February 16th


Did you know that Nick was a hockey player in high school? So a hockey fundraiser is a natural fit!

Your QC Storm supported the work of the Nick Teddy Foundation by donating $5 of every seat sold at Twister Level. Our fans filled the section, and then some! 


Bear was be there with his cape on and brought one for Radar, too. Our NTF family got in on the fun by wearing their favorite Super Hero costumes. 

As always, there was an information table on the concourse, raffle for a free entry in the Nick Teddy 5k on September 14th, and t-shirt throw at intermission.

View photos of some of the fun here.

Dates coming soon

We will partner once again with our good friends at Front Street Brewery​​ to provide our over-21 supporters with an opportunity for an after-work evening social.

It's a great opportunity to sip brews on the party deck, enjoy good food, and meet with great people gathered to help our cause!
