Rams Join SSM Health Care to Kick Cancer

Posted Sep 13, 2014

Read about the Rams special teams unit joining forces with SSM Health Care.

St. Louis Rams kicker Greg Zuerlein, punter Johnny Hekker, and long snapper Jake McQuaide will be under quite a bit of pressure this season. These three gentlemen are co-chairing a campaign with SSM Health Care called SSM Kick Cancer. Zuerlein, Hekker, and McQuaide’s goal is to continue to make field goals and extra points.

For every Rams point kicked fans can pledge a set amount.  For example, last season the Rams scored 26 field goals and additionally scored 38 extra points for a total of 116 points.  Pledging 25 cents per point would add up to a $29 donation at the end of the season.

Fans can make pledges by visiting  By pledging during this campaign, fans will be invited to Rams Park for a party at the beginning of the 2015 season.

Proceeds during the SSM Kick Cancer campaign will benefit SSM Health Care and patients who are battling cancer.

To begin this campaign, St. Louis Rams linebacker Jo-Lonn Dunbar and Hekker host the first annual RAM-Oke on Monday, September 22 from 7:00-10:00 PM at the Four Seasons. Ram players will sing karaoke and pose for pictures with fans in the mystery photo booth. During Fan-RAM-Oke, guests will have the chance to sing with a Rams player. There will also be an auction, food, drinks, and more. For more information, visit
