Local Heroes Lace Up for Battle of Badges Hockey Championship

MANCHESTER — Police and firefighters will take to the ice for the 7th annual CHaD Battle of the Badges Hockey Championship at the Verizon Wireless Arena on Saturday, March 1 to benefit the Children's Hospital at Dartmouth-Hitchcock (CHaD).

Representatives of police and fire departments from communities around the state will bring their skills to this spirited match-up of good vs. good and includes Badges' Police Team player Derek Newcomb of Plymouth Police, as well as Team Fire representation from Plymouth Firefighter Jeremy Bonan and Emmett Plourde of Plymouth Fire and Rescue.

Team Fire will be led by Lieutenant Mickey Drouin of the Dover Fire & Rescue, and Team Police by Lieutenant Pete Favreau of the Manchester Police Department. Both captains have played a lead role in the game since 2008.

Players dedicate themselves to several practices and a featured game in front of thousands of roaring fans. Each player pledges to raise $1,500 to demonstrate their passion and support for CHaD's mission to serve the region's children. CHaD helps players connect with the cause behind the game by pairing them with "CHaD Buddies," young CHaD patients who serve as special guests on gameday.

More than 5,500 families, friends, CHaD supporters, and hockey fans are expected to fill the Verizon Wireless to cheer on their local heroes and raise support for CHaD. Fans can get into the action by contributing to player fundraising and by wearing red or blue on game day to cheer for their community's local heroes. Information about the players, rosters, fundraising, and ticket sales can be found at www.CHaDHockey.org. Tickets to the game are $10, kids 10 and under are free.
