A Good Cause

Chris Garner, a former Husky Hockey equipment manager and current hockey equipment manager at UMD, is currently battling MDS (Myelodysplatic Syndrome). Jeremiah Minkel,  the St. Cloud State Hockey equipment manager, met Chris when they were both student assistants at SCSU and they have been close friends ever since. Jeremiah has put together an on-line auction that will be starting October 24th at www.obermanauction.com to raise funds to help offset Chris's medical costs not covered by insurance. To date they have collected 82 college and pro jerseys, over 20 autographed sticks and many other items that were graciously donated. Also, check out the the Chris Garner Support and Benefit Facebook page.

Donated items and cash can be sent to:
St. Cloud State University
Attention: Jeremiah Minkel
720 4th Avenue South
St. Cloud, MN 56301-4498

Please make checks out to "C/O Chris Garner"

Cards and letters of support can be mailed to:

Chris Garner
1765 10th Ave. SE
Rochester, MN 55904

Coach Motzko said this week that he has been very impressed with the efforts of Jeremiah Minkel and with the hockey community. Apparently, the SCSU equipment room is FULL of awesome hockey memorabilia right now. You can see more in the video below:

Please help if you can.
