One of the Stampede's Own Talks About Life After Cancer


Stampede Players teach during Sunrise Elementary P.E. Night

(Cheyenne, WY) It was a cold, blustery, snowy night in February when the Stampede slide into the parking lot at SUNRISE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL. But, why were these "Icons" of Stampede hockey there armed with hockey sticks, pucks, and even a hockey goal?

Sunrise Elementary had asked the Stampede to come in and teach some basic hockey skills, play with the kids and generally just have a good time running a station at the school's Physical Education night. Even though the weather was ugly outside, around 100 kids and parents made the trip into the school's gymnasium.

2016-2017 Stampede Trauma Bear Program (Teddy Bear Toss)

2014-2015 Stampede Trauma Bear Program (Teddy Bear Toss)

By Jesse Horne KGWN TV
Members of the Cheyenne Stampede were out in the community Thursday dispensing ... not goals, but teddy bears.

With over 500 stuffed animals in-tow, players and general manager Mark Lantz dropped off the furry creatures to several organizations ­ including the Cheyenne Fire Dept., Cheyenne Police Department, Cheyenne Regional Medical Center and the Salvation Army.

"It really warms the heart,” Lantz said to NewsChannel 5 on Thursday. “A lot of the boys have never participated in anything like this before. So, after you give them an explanation of what it's about, they're gung-ho.

“They talk to their adopted families, their girlfriends - everybody they know to bring a bear to toss onto the ice, because it's that valuable of a program. It really warms your hears down to the deepest depths.”

The animals were collected during the team’s “Teddy Bear Toss Night” on Jan. 23.

For the organizations receiving the animals, they regard this action from the Stampede as an amazing gesture of goodwill.

“Needless to say, we deal with families - and children - specifically - when they're in a time of need and a time of crisis,” Lt. Rob Dafoe of the Cheyenne Police Department said to NewsChannel 5. “What better gesture that could ever be for a police officer than for an officer to provide a small child with a teddy bear or a small toy in good faith and in this hard time in their life.”

The giveaway of the stuffed animals is not just a welcome sign of commitment to the Cheyenne community, but Lantz said it also erases one big stereotype.

“Everybody looks at hockey players as big, rough, tough, mean, S.O.B.s on the ice - but that's where it is. It stops on the ice,” he said. “There's not one of our players who doesn't have a huge heart who wants to help a little kid out.

“You see it with our ‘Skate with the Stampede’ afterwards, where the kids come out and skate with their favorite player. All of our players are just big kids. They have big hearts and it makes them feel great, too. It's a pleasure to be able to do something like this which is that meaningful.”

Cancer Awareness Proceeds Awarded

Cancer has touched many lives of the Stampede players, billet families, player families, and fans. The Cheyenne Stampede is proud to present a check for $1,850 to the Cheyenne Regional Medical Center's New Cancer Center. Carol Waeckerlin (pictured right to left) Tammy Lantz, Carol Waeckerlin, Stampede Dance Team, Mark Lantz, GM - accepted this donation. Carol is a Foundation Board member and is the Cancer Center campaign chair.

In keeping up with growth recently in southeast Wyoming and with changes in healthcare nationwide, Cheyenne Regional Medical Center is hitting several goals in its recent expansion. In August the new Emergency Department will open, expanding the beds from 18 to 43; thus, the first goal.

The second goal will be the opening of the new cancer center in mid-November. This center will have ambulatory treatment and survival services provided under one roof with its own parking lot. Rather than navigating through the parking garage and hospital and to off site locales, it will be much easier for patients and families to be comfortable in the homey, warm setting of the new center.

Raising of $10 million to help fund the center is the third goal. This will take a concerted effort on all of our parts, and the Stampede's contribution will indeed help us, CRMC, achieve this Hat Trick!

On behalf of the Cheyenne Regional Foundation Board, THANK YOU, Cheyenne Stampede, for your heart warming gift. And best of luck to you in your season and your personal goals.

The $1,850 was raised from the proceeds of the Cancer Jersey sales and donations.  The Cheyenne Stampede would like to thank the fans and parents, for making this possible."
