JBT Hockey Shootout – This Saturday!

Join in the family fun at the 7th Annual JBT Hockey Shootout this Saturday January 28th  6:30 PM at the Merrill Fay Ice Arena.

BIG thanks to our New England Wolves, who will take on the Seacoast Spartans, and the ten generous, hard working locals participating in the Not So Mini One-On-One Shootout Competition. The winner of the shootout takes home the JBT Trophy!

Our skaters would appreciate your help with fundraising. Please go to: Every $500 a skater raises gets them one puck in the shootout. Choose a competitor and make your tax deductible donation. Every dollar moves us closer to curing DIPG and finding the homerun cure for pediatric cancer!

Above all, this event is about community. Each year, your love and support fills the hearts of all involved with joy and amazement.

Thank you all.

Together, we are making a difference. Together, we will find the cure.

9th Annual JBT Regatta

Come join us for the 9th Annual JBT Regatta on Saturday July 16th at the Winnipesaukee Yacht Club.

You can support sailors through the Cure Starts Now website here: The more money each boat raises helps them gain advantage in the race.

We are bringing back the Regatta Party for 2022!! Come by the WYC 4:00 – 6:30 for a BBQ, music by Cody James and a Live Auction! We have a hefty list of amazing packages that you are going to want to bid on! We are very grateful to be able to gather together again.

As always, we thank you for your continued support. We are making a big difference in cancer research and getting closer to the day when we hear “you are cured”.

It Was A Great Night!

Thanks to everyone who came out to support the NE Wolves & The Cure Starts Now Foundation last night at the Merrill Fay Arena. Collectively, we raised $32K for DIPG research and we had so much fun in the process. Thank you to all the skaters and supporters!

After two rounds and a true shoot-out, Chad Baron was able to retain his Crown as the Not So Mini One-on-One Champion! Thanks to all for your continued support and inspiration for our Family — It means the World.

JBT Hockey Shootout – January 22, 2022!

Save the Date! Our 6th Annual “Not So Mini” One-on-One JBT Shootout will be on Saturday, January 22nd at 6 PM at the Merrill Fay Ice Arena, Laconia NH.

We hope you’ll come out to the arena to the enjoy the festivities and help support the fundraising efforts of our 10 skaters. Please click here to get to the skaters fundraising pages and support the talented skaters of you choice. The Shootout consists of 2 Rounds with a Championship Round. For every $1,000 raised by each skater, they get a puck for every Round. The more money raised, the more chances to shoot one in the net and take home the Trophy.

We lost John 7 1/2 years ago to DIPG. He’d be 14 today, in the middle of his freshman year in high school at Gilford. DIPG is a rare and devastating brain tumor. Through all your support to the Cure Starts Now Foundation, we have funded the best oncologists to research this type of tumor with the goal to find a Homerun Cure for all Cancers.  It’s not going to happen this year and probably not next year. Yet, we believe in our hearts that it will happen.  By joining us and getting involved with this event, you’re fueling this fight and pushing this educated and effective research in a positive direction.
