Each Other

The fight against pediatric cancer has been one of the Blue Jackets Foundation's primary areas of focus since the team's inception in 2000. Kids fighting cancer are our heroes and we support them by offering unique experiences and program funding. Some call it therapy through distraction, but most kids call it fun.

Blue Jackets players, team personalities and Stinger often give their time, attention and care when making special trips to visit hospitalized kids and distributing CBJ Courage Kits. 

The Columbus Blue Jackets partnered with Make-A-Wish New Brunswick and Make-A-Wish Ohio, Kentucky & Indiana to grant a young fan’s wish to meet Blue Jackets All-Star Johnny Gaudreau. Alexandre is 17 years old and grew up playing hockey until he was diagnosed with brain cancer in 2020. Alexandre and his family spent the day with Johnny and the Blue Jackets team, attending practice and a game. Alexandre is now in remission and part of a cancer study examining the benefits of exercise as a good way to recover from cancer.   

Our grant to Flying Horse Farms, a camp thoughtfully adapted for children with serious illnesses, supported a week-long hematology and oncology camp.
