The Lethbridge Hurricanes are proud to support the Canadian Cancer Society in their fundraiser:
Face Off Against Cancer.” The hockey themed event has raised
$1.3-million dollars over four years, but this is the first time the event is
being held in Lethbridge.
The 24-hour hockey game will take place at the
ENMAX Centre from 7:00pm on Friday, September 6th to 7:00pm on Saturday,
September 7th. The event is open to players of all skill levels and the event
will be open to the public to enjoy as well.
The Lethbridge Hurricanes
are proud to support such an important event as the Canadian Cancer Society
raises awareness and fights more than 200 types of cancer. In supporting the
event, some of the Hurricanes players will be on hand to “guest coach” and
Hurricanes Head Coach Drake Berehowsky will even lace up the skates and join in
the game Friday, September 6th from 7:00 to 8:00pm.
Over the years the
Hurricanes have been proud supporters of the Canadian Cancer Society through the
Relay for Life (Chuck-A-Puck), Pink in the Rink and other awareness campaigns.
“We feel it so important to continue to talk and help raise awareness about all
forms of Cancer. Sometime during our lifetime we’ll either go through it
ourselves or know someone who will battle this disease and we want to do
whatever we can to help continue the fight” stated Hurricanes Communications and
Public Relations Manager, Esther Madziya.
