Organized by: Erik Wolenberg

THE STORY:

For decades, Dave Rue has had an immeasurable impact on the hockey community in West Michigan and well beyond. Anyone who has had the pleasure of sharing the rink with him while he there coaching, officiating, mentoring, or just enjoying the sport has surely gotten at least a smile or two as a result.

In the wake of his recent lung cancer diagnosis, it's time for us all to return the favor.

Dave is currently undergoing treatment and will be off the ice indefinitely. Anyone who knows Dave knows that being away from hockey is almost as tough as the journey back to full health. Dave is tough as nails, so the cancer doesn't stand a chance...but treatment is taxing both physically and financially. Any donation that you can make to help with the medical bills, living expense, etc., would be greatly appreciated. Let's show Dave we're in this fight with him...and that we're all on Team Rue!

For those of you who have Facebook: If you want to learn more about the cause you are supporting or to hear firsthand how much he's impacted those around him, please contact Brian here: https://www.facebook.com/brimyn.t      There's a private group we can invite you in to learn more.
