TUCSON, AZ – The Tucson Roadrunners, proud American Hockey League affiliate of the Arizona Coyotes, announced the formation of a new charitable, fundraising operation today, titled Roadrunners Give Back.
The newly formed initiative will work as a branch of the Arizona Coyotes Foundation, a non-profit organization that promotes healthcare, education and cultural arts programs for children and service men and women.
“We are very excited to be able to work in many ways to raise money and partner with all the hard-working charities in Tucson,” said Bob Hoffman, Tucson Roadrunners President. “In our first season, we were able to raise close to $40,000 for the Tucson non-profit community and with a more focused plan and with the support and strength of the Arizona Coyotes Foundation, we feel we will be able to multiply that number more substantially.”
As the first order of business for Roadrunners Give Back, the team has begun working with the American Heart Association (AHA) as the presenting sponsor of the AHA's Jump Rope for Hearts and Hoops program awards. These two programs teach elementary and middle school children the value of making healthy food choices and the importance of staying active...all for a healthier Tucson.
“Our children are our future, now more than ever we need to elevate the conversation around helping our children understand the importance of remaining physically active and making healthy food choices.” Said Betsy Stuetze, Executive Director of the Tucson Division of the American Heart Association. “We are thrilled to be working alongside our Tucson Roadrunners to make a positive impact on the children of our community.”
