Ray Cruz, a patient at Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt, performed the national anthem at the Nashville Predators Hockey Fights Cancer night. The event brings special guests from Children’s Hospital to Bridgestone Arena for a one-of-a-kind experience. Patients are able to tour the locker rooms, meet the team, ride the Zamboni and join the players on the ice. Over the past eight years combined, the team has provided more than $2 million in donations and in-kind contributions to Children’s Hospital and its programs.
