Tucker was fortunate that his cancer treatment was close to his home, family and friends. Tucker was able to play with others nearly every single day he was in the hospital. However, every week in the hospital, Tucker would notice that there were children, patients that did not have visitors, some not even their parents. That broke Tucker’s heart and he vowed to help these lonely children who were stuck in a hospital with no distraction from their illness.
Sadly, Tucker cannot help those lonely patients, but his Teammates can. To become Tucker’s Teammate simply find a fun way to raise a little money while playing with your friends. Tucker’s Teammates will create funds that will be used to bring the patients’ own “team” to the hospital. Whether they need gas money, transportation, or a hotel room because of the long drive, Team Tucker: Play Laugh Love will provide it. Everyone needs their “team”, and never more than when they are facing a life-threatening health condition. Tucker’s Teammates will make it possible for each VIP (Very Important Patient) to have their “team” by their side.

Cade and Finn De St. Hubert were teammates of Tucker all four years that Tucker played baseball and hockey in Hopkins. Now the De St. Hubert brothers continue on as Tucker's Teammates by hosting an annual pond hockey tournament to raise money and awareness for the work of Team Tucker. This year, due to Covid, they replaced the tournament with a Dollar Drive. Finn and Cade rallied players from Hopkins Hockey and nearby towns to raise money by having each team member bring in a dollar. The Dollar Drive was a very successful fundraising effort and it provided all participants with a chance to honor Tucker's legacy of caring for others. Thank you to Cade and Finn and all of the kids who contributed!
