SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KCAU) — A popular local event is once again taking to the ice to promote awareness for all types of cancer.

In Partnership with UnityPoint Health-St. Lukes, the Sioux City Musketeers are raising money to fight cancer in Siouxland.

Getting the players pumped up for Cross Check for Cancer game day, former Muskee, Tommy Olczyk, spoke with the players about his own experience with cancer.

“To tackle a terrible disease that has negatively impacted a lot of people, when bad things happen, you have to have to make the most of it, have to stay as positive as you can,” said Olczyk.

The Musketeers wore special lavender jerseys to show their support of cancer fighters, cancer survivors, and their families.
