Bear Necessities Pediatric Cancer Foundation was founded in 1992 in memory of eight-year-old Barret “Bear” Krupa who died after a five and a half year battle with Wilms Tumor, a pediatric cancer. The mission of Bear Necessities Pediatric Cancer Foundation is to eliminate pediatric cancer and to provide hope and support to those who are touched by it. The funds collected by the New Trier hockey players will go to Bear Necessities’ Bear Hugs Program which supports cancer patients (ages 0-19) as well as their immediate families as they face the many challenges that accompany the diagnosis and treatment of pediatric cancer. A Bear Hug is a customized experience that brightens the life of a child going through cancer and helps him or her feel like a kid.
A Drop in the Bucket Makes a Bear Hug Come True
Thanks so much for your support.
The safety and well being of each student athlete is the number one concern of New Trier Girls Hockey. In keeping with that philosophy, and because of the increase in recent years of concussions connected to ice hockey, mandatory baseline concussion testing is required for each NTGH player. This test is required to be taken prior to the commencement of a player’s first season with NTGH and every second season thereafter. It is our preference that this test be performed prior to tryouts, but at a minimum it must be completed prior to October 1, 2016.
Baseline cognitive testing provides information on a child’s brain function prior to an injury. If an athlete were to receive a concussion, the baseline test can then be compared to a post-injury test. This provides objective data to better assess recovery from a concussion. For the sixth consecutive year the Chicago Blackhawks, NorthShore University HealthSystem, AHAI, and Athletico Physical Therapy have teamed up to offer FREE baseline concussion testing through the "A Step aHead" program.
