Giving Back to the Karas Family

Assistance after a tragic event.

In June 2013, Jeff Karas lost his long battle with cancer, leaving behind a lovely wife Heather and two beautiful children, Michael and Marina. Jeff had a strong connection with hockey over his lifetime. He played at Colorado College while continuing his education and then played in adult leagues after finishing school. Committed to passing on his love of the sport, he coached for the Colorado Select Girls Association , Littleton Hockey Association, and Chaparral High School.

Through donations from friends, family, teammates, and the kids he coached, along with a grant from Dawg Nation Hockey Foundation, we were proud to present a check for $14,100 to the Karas Family. We hope the funds raised will be a source of comfort in the days to come and will help the Karas family continue on with the wonderful legacy of “Giving Back” Jeff worked so hard to achieve.
