The 6th Anniversary

Race for the Puck 5K

October 7th, 2018   



Kick off the 2018-19 season by celebrating Race for the Puck's 6th anniversary! 
Also, we are thrilled to celebrate one of the Hockey Hall of Fame's 2018 inductees, Willie O'Ree, and congratulate him on his lifelong achievements, especially his contributions as the Hockey is for Everyone ambassador!  Help us thank Willie for his tireless support of our Club and encouragement of kids all over the country! 

Whether you like to walk, run, inline skate, skateboard or use your wheelchair, you can show your support for the Columbus Ice Hockey Club at this year’s Race for the Puck 5K, to be held at 9:00 a.m. Sunday, Oct. 7, 2018 at Dodge Recreation Center and Park near downtown Columbus.                                             

The Race for the Puck 5K is a fun and healthy community event that supports the Columbus Ice Hockey Club, a member of the National Hockey League’s “Hockey is for Everyone” organization. Hockey is for Everyone supports non-profit youth hockey organizations that are committed to offering children of all backgrounds opportunities to play hockey.

Not just concerned with on-ice development, the Columbus Ice Hockey Club is devoted to developing life skills, such as teamwork, responsibility, and leadership, in its members. As a division of the Columbus Recreation and Parks Department, the club has served over 40,000 youth since 1999.  Many of CIHC's participants have graduated high school and received academic scholarships to universities, including The Ohio State University, Miami University, Allegheny College, Thurgood Marshall Scholarship, and the United States Air Force Academy.

Proceeds from Race for the Puck will be used to help grow the Columbus Ice Hockey Club program and provide assistance for current members.
