Saginaw: Pulse3 Shocks and Saves Fundraiser Turns 10

The concept behind the Shocks and Saves fundraiser is one of a kind. Local physicians volunteer to play a game of hockey against the opposing team of emergency medical personnel. The goal for this whole event is to raise funds and awareness in the battle against heart disease.

This charity game is presented in partnership with sudden cardiac arrest survivor and Detroit Red Wings alum Jiri Fischer, in addition to Mobile Medical Response and the Saginaw Spirit.

Red Wings and NHL greats alike take over the ice with doctors and paramedics, with a goal for the local EMTs to “shock” and doctors to “save” cardiac arrest victims.

The Shocks and Saves fundraiser is fueled by the Pulse3 foundation, and throughout the past 10 years, many of their honored guests have survived sudden cardiac arrest.

The 10th annual Shocks & Saves Charity Hockey Game takes place at the Dow Event Center on Saturday, February 4, at 4:30 PM. For tickets and information click here.
