Shockwave Allstars Makes 50 Blankets


Thank You Shockwave for Hosting a Get Cozy Blanket Party!

Here is a copy of the flyer and email Shockwave sent out to their athletes.

Please Join Shockwave Allstars for

A “Get Cozy During Chemo” Blanket Party


Sunday, October 26 from 2:00pm to 8pm (during team practices) at Shockwave

How It Works:  

We’ve cut the material and gotten the blankets ready to tie. Come make a blanket or work together with another Shockwave athlete to make one (just tie some knots- no sewing required!). Come a little early for your practice or stay a little later. The blankets will be donated to patients undergoing chemotherapy. It’s a great opportunity to do something awesome for someone who will truly appreciate this wonderful gift. Plus you’ll earn SSL hours too!

Why we do this:

From Marissa Stoller: As many of you know, I lost my dad to cancer 2 1/2 years ago. While battling this cancer, my family and I were constantly amazed by the kindness and generosity we received not only from people we knew but from complete strangers as well.  In hopes of sharing such thoughtfulness with others, I have started “Get Cozy During Chemo”, where we make fleece blankets and donate them to cancer patients around the country.
