On Saturday and Sunday, Southside Ice Arena will go purple. That’s because it is time for this year’s Hockey Fights Cancer weekend. This collaborative effort raises funds to support cancer research at Van Andel Institute (VAI). Last year the event raised over $75,000.
There will be many exciting events throughout the weekend including some special purple ice, family skate, good food, and many hockey games including the all-star game on Sunday featuring Mike Knuble and Travis Richards.

Southside Ice Arena – 566 100th St SW, Byron Center, MI 49315
Fox Motors Hockey Club, Grand Rapids Catholic Central, and Byron Center will all be wearing special Addix purple hockey jerseys in honor of the event. Their jerseys are pictured below along with GVSU’s purple hockey jerseys from their January Purple Community event.
