Cheyenne Stampede Give Back to Community

by Laura Cisneros

Earlier this year the Cheyenne Stampede received the 2017 Community Service Award. Stampede General Manager Mark Lantz and his wife, Tammy say, "it's a great honor to be awarded Cheyenne's Community Service Award. We believe in giving back to our community and we are humbled by the generosity of Stampede Nation."

The Stampede has been able to raise $16,000 to the Cheyenne Regional Medical Center over the last 7 years. This year the Stampede were able to raise $3,000 for the Cheyenne Cancer Center, a cause that has impacted the lives of many of the players, players families, billet families, and fans. Cheyenne Stampedes very own goalie, Patrik Asenbrenner, is a cancer survivor.  Most of the money raised came from the players Pink jerseys that were completely sold out in a silent auction. 

Head Coach, Neil Breen, says, "We bring kids in to not only to teach them hockey but how to matriculate into society and that's one of the big things we like to do as an organization, get involved in the community".
