The First Responder Face-Off Foundation is a 501(c)3 charitable organization that arranges coordinated hockey games and related events between First Responder teams through our First Responder Face-Off™. In partnering with collegiate and NHL affiliated venues, these events highlight our First Responders on the ice which creates awareness along with the support of the community in a fun, competitive environment. Proceeds raised through tickets, sponsorships and merchandise are utilized through our Hockey Helping Heroes™ program.
