Pink Rink Day - Saturday March 22
Submitted By Julia on Sunday, March 16, 2014
In conjunction with the OMHA and the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation – Ontario Region, in February the Peewee HL Division joined the Hockey Hair for Breast Cancer campaign.  And what better time of the season is there to run any kind of campaign with hockey hair then the playoffs.

Peewee player Alex Mineault took on this challenge.  I wanted to participate in this for my Auntie Dar who is a survivor of breast cancer, and for all women who may be affected by this horrible disease.”  To date Alex has raised over $700 to go towards funding breast cancer research, and is currently ranked the second highest individual fundraiser.  He has pledged to dye his hair pink for his remaining hockey games if he reaches $1000 in donations.  And this is a big deal for if you ask him, he will tell you that he absolutely detests that colour.

To support Alex, the WSMHA House League is sponsoring March 22nd as “Pink the Rink Day”, a day in which all games are dedicated to and are in support of all women who have been affected by breast cancer, especially those in our community.  Take the opportunity to show your support:  stop by one of our tables and for a donation, you can tape your stick pink, or you can support Alex directly by making a donation online.  Click on the following link http://www.runforthecure.com/site/TR/Events/Ontario_HockeyHair?px=3553745&pg=personal&fr_id=1780

and click on the green “Donate Now” button to donate online.  Donations of $20 or more are eligible for a tax receipt.

1 in 9 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime.

Let’s rally together for all the women in our lives, including our hockey moms, and help to create a future without breast cancer.
