To recognise the Breast Cancer Awareness month, the RiverHawks are urging community people to support and raise funds for the welfare of the breast cancer patients and the research work related to the disease.
A hockey match will be organised on Oct. 24 at the Gale Centre and the players will wear pink uniforms. The money generated in the charity match will be donated to the Canadian Cancer Society.
After the game, the specially made pink uniforms will be auctioned off and the money collected in the auction will also be given to the charity.
An extra donation of $2 from each admission will also be given back to the charity.
There will be a free admission for minor hockey players who will wear the pink jersey and will come with their parents.
Wes Wolfe, marketing Director for the Jr. C hockey club said that the main purpose to organise such an event is to encourage people to support the cause.
On the other hand, the Canadian Cancer Society will also organise fundraising walk and rally in support of breast cancer patients on Sunday in Leamington.
The event will be a one- to five-km walk and there will be no competition. The money collected in the campaign will be given for the breast cancer research work.
