BRUNSWICK, Maine - The Bowdoin College men's ice hockey team's game on December 9 versus Connecticut College served as a fundraiser for United Cerebral Palsy of Maine.

The Polar Bears have a personal attachment to the fight against cerebral palsy, as the team adopted Lucien Hodell in 2013 through Team Impact, a non-profit organization that connects collegiate teams with children facing adverse or life-threatening conditions.

Over the past five seasons, Lucien has been a crucial member of the team as he continues his fight against CP and the team will honor his efforts by wearing custom Cerebral Palsy awareness jerseys on December 9. Fans will have the ability to donate to the cause, purchase their own jersey and enter a raffle to win a team autographed jersey. All proceeds will go to United Cerebral Palsy of Maine.
