Giving Back to Craig Moilanen 2014

Help with massive medical bills.

Craig Moilanen is an avid hockey player and fan, and in 2012 realized his dream of becoming a firefighter and eventually was promoted to the rank of captain. Unfortunately, during a doctor’s examination for a cold, it was discovered that Craig had lymphoma.

As often happens with firefighters, his brothers and sisters have rallied in support of Craig and his family. In December, they staged a one day hockey tournament featuring departments from all over the region, and all proceeds from that event went into a fund to help with his massive medical bills.

Dawg Nation got word of Craig’s situation, and have joined with these heroes in their efforts to aid a fellow hockey player, public servant, and great family man. Because of the tournament, other contributions, and a grant from the DNHF, on February 8th we were able to present Craig and his family a check for $17,000- our largest single amount to date.

We wish Craig Moilanen and his family all the best, and he’ll stay in our thoughts and prayers as he continues his battle.
