About this event

The Metro East First Responders Hockey Team is composed of active and retired first responders and veterans from the Riverbend area.
As we are almost certain you are aware, first responders and veterans put their safety and well-being on the line every day that they go to work. We honor them and their families. As such, in December 2023, after being sick for several weeks, 18-year-old Wyatt Owens was diagnosed with Lymphoma. Wyatt is the son of one of the Metro-East First Responders hockey team members, Bill Owens, who has participated in multiple fundraising charity events. Wyatt has been undergoing life-altering treatment at Children’s Hospital, including chemotherapy.
This has had a tremendous impact on the Owen’s family, including financial hardship. Wyatt is an avid hockey fan, but being a senior in high school, he will not be able to finish his hockey season.
The MEFR Hockey Team wants to assist Bill Owens and his family to soften the blow of this life-changing event. We will be playing a hockey game including local players currently or formerly associated with local Law Enforcement (Guns) against local Firefighters/EMS (Hoses). The Guns vs. Hoses' event will be played on Saturday, April 13th, 2023, at 3:00 pm, graciously hosted by The East Alton Ice Arena in East Alton, Illinois. 100% of the proceeds this year will be donated to the Owens family. To accomplish this task, we’re asking for your help.
