On July 15th, the 9th Annual Racker Rivals Big Red Hockey Game will be presented at Lynah Rink. This unique community event will include alumni from Cornell’s men’s and women’s teams, Cornell hockey coaches, Olympians, hockey celebrities, and local players from the community – all gathering to raise awareness and funds for Racker’s Early Childhood programs. In 2019 the game drew a crowd of over 2,500 people and raised over $135,000 for Racker’s programs. In 2021, in the midst of a pandemic, we raised over $170,000. In 2022, we broke the $1 million total raised mark!

This unique community event will garner much attention.  The communities that we live and work in hold a special place for hockey, and the games pull fans from all over central New York and the southern tier.  Racker has been serving the region for 75 years and is humbled to enjoy a great reputation for providing critical services for many in the region.

Event Format

The Racker Rivals Big Red Hockey Game will take place this summer at Cornell University’s Lynah Rink. Two teams will be formed with approximately 15 players per team, with talent equally divided between the two teams. Community members will be able to make pledges online for each player on the teams.
