This year at the 2015 Female Provincial Tournaments teams will participate in a fundraiser for the Atlantic Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation called “Pink in the Rink”. All money raised stays in our province.
Pledge sheets have been sent to all teams participating in our year end Provincials. Banners have been sent to all host sites as well as pink ribbons and stickers. We encourage all teams to bring their donations to Opening Ceremonies. We are also asking host sites to designate a volunteer to pass a hat to the spectators in the stands during this time. Spray painting a pink skate has been used with a great deal of success in other venues.
This is an important women’s issue and I am sure all of us have been touched in some way with a mother, daughter, aunt, cousin or friend who has fought this disease. Your donations will go a long way in helping the foundation in their efforts to spread awareness about breast cancer and engaging Canadians affected by breast cancer.
Information on what the foundation does can be found on their web site. www.cbcf.org/atlantic.
We look forward to making this an annual event at our provincial tournaments.
