Rockin For A Cure, founded by Madison Scouts alumnus and instructor, Steve Weekes, has grown from its humble beginnings in 2000 to a large community organization now called Rockin4ALS. It has now expanded to three Madison-area fundraising events:
- Drop the Puck on ALS – February 2, 2018
- Rockin For A Cure – April 21, 2018
- Strike Out ALS – June 9, 2018
New this year, Madison Capitols hockey team President and former Badgers Hockey alumnus, Andrew Joudrey, is teaming up with Madison’s own Rockin4ALS and alumni and friends of the Madison Scouts Drum & Bugle Corps. Andrew, who was Badgers team captain in 2006-07 and a member of the 2006 NCAA Championship Team, has an intimate connection to ALS. Andrew’s wife, Sandy, lost her father to the devastating disease that has no cure.
Drop the Puck on ALS tickets will include a 4 p.m. pre-game tailgate at the Thirsty Goat at 304 Cahill Main in Fitchburg. This event includes door prizes, an ALS T-shirt, and roundtrip transportation from the Thirsty Goat to the Madison Capitols Ice Arena.

ALS is a terminal disease with no cure; all proceeds from this event support patient services in Wisconsin though the ALS Association Wisconsin Chapter.
