Our Story


The AT9 Foundation is a non-profit organization established by Alex Tuch and his family. The primary purpose of this organization is to assist children facing challenges in all areas of their life. We specialize in the focus of supporting research and aid to helping those with pediatric cancer and children with
special needs. We are dedicated to making a difference through fundraising efforts and community outreach. Our organization strives to make positive changes in the lives of children and their families.  


Alex Tuch, NHL player of the Buffalo Sabres, is married to Kylie Edwards and the two have a dog named Teddy (golden retriever). Alex is the eldest son of Carl and Sharon and brother of twins Luke and Leah.  His family has been fundraising for various causes long before his NHL career has started. He has always remembered those that have helped him along the way, and this Foundation is part of his was of ‘paying back’ his supporters and ‘paying it forward.’ Alex gives credit to his family, friends, neighbors, community, coaches, and the 'village’ that has helped him on his journey to the NHL. His passion is for the youth and the hope that cancer will, one day, no longer claim young lives. He has participated in many charitable events, donated money, raised money, and created awareness for numerous great causes.

Many have asked how they can help. You can join Alex and his family in supporting the AT9 Foundation.  We remain dedicated to helping the needs of children and their families, throughout our nation. This is our way to say ‘thank you’ to the people that supported us.

Together we can do so much more.
