12th Annual Quinn’s Quest

On Saturday, December 3rd, 2022, the Ames Little Cyclone Hockey team hosted their 12th Annual Quinn’s Quest Benefit in memory of Quinn Boylston and in honor of the Mid-West Hockey League Miracle Kids, as well as Quinn’s family. An excerpt is included below from articles provided at the benefit.

Quinn is the seven-year-old brother of Ames Cyclones, Orion (2013 Alum), and Payton (2015 Alum) Boylston. Following his first Mites season in March 2011, Quinn was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor. His battle against cancer was deemed “Quinn’s Quest” and was supported by countless teammates, friends, and family members. Following a courageous, five-month battle, Quinn died in September 2011.  

With the intent of fundraising to support children fighting life-threatening illnesses, the Ames Minor Hockey Association waives entry fees to the game- encouraging spectators to donate to the cause. 

For those who couldn’t attend the game or wish to support or donate to the cause: please visit the Ames Minor Hockey Association’s website for more information. Individuals who wish to participate in the future can look out for the annual Quinn’s Quest Benefit, and similar fundraisers thrown by the Ames High and Iowa State University Dance Marathon. Information for said events can be found via the club’s Instagram and on the University’s Website.
