The Boston Bruins Foundation and Bfit have a new partnership with the 2nd annual Heroes Cup Hockey Tournament which takes place every April in Marlborough MA.
The mission of the Heroes Cup Hockey Tournament is to bring together First Responders, Firefighters, Police Officers, Military Members, and EMS workers for a fun weekend while promoting a healthy active lifestyle through hockey. Our goal is to show support for our First Responders while raising money for the charities they are passionate about.
In 2017; the first year the Heroes Cup Hockey Tournament was held, 52 teams comprised on 850 hockey players played in over 120 hockey games throughout the weekend. The tournament champions included the Cape Cod Black Knights, Coast Guard Hockey, Somerville Fire Department, ATF Boston, Nashua Police, and Lowell Fire.
This year the goal is to increase the size of the tournament with close to 80 teams giving more First Responders a chance to play. With that number of teams, the Heroes Cup will be one of the largest First Responder tournaments in the country.
