Town of Dickinson, NY (WBNG Binghamton) Binghamton Senators defenseman Corey Cowick was back in the Southern Tier at the Relay for Life at SUNY Broome on Friday night.

Cowick was wrapping up the first year of his "Cowick Fights for a Cure" campaign, in which he donated $10 for each successful penalty kill this season.

Overall, It was a quite a successful first go for Cowick.

"It all started with kind of a cap of $1,500 for me to give to the American Cancer Society and can say we're extremely pleased to be giving over $10,000 dollars to the American Cancer Society," said Cowick. "The hockey community here is second to none, but the community itself people helping and doing everything to help me has been a very humbling experience."

Cowick has now played in parts of four seasons for the B-Sens. Stay tuned next week for more on what Cowick had to say about his hockey future.
