Local Minor Hockey Team Ready To Fight Cancer
A local minor hockey team will be helping the fight against cancer this November. The Kent Cobras Major Peewee ‘AA’ team will bring the NHL Initiative “Hockey Fights Cancer” to Chatham-Kent.
“Throughout November, you will see our team proudly wearing our purple/mauve “Hockey Fights Cancer” jerseys, to bring awareness to this important cause,” the team wrote about the month long events.
The Major Peewee Cobras will also hold a ‘Hockey Fights Cancer – Chuck the Puck’ event on Saturday, November 16 at their 2pm home game at Thames Campus.
Pucks for the event are for sale for $5 through players on the team, at Chatham Pro Shop, at Sobeys this Saturday, and September 28 from 11-2pm.
The team is offering a sponsored prize package to the person who chucks their puck closest to centre ice at the game, although people can purchase pucks to support the cause without attending the game.
Pucks can also be dedicated to someone who has been affected by cancer.
All proceeds will go to the Canadian Cancer Society.
