an association, it's important for our young athletes to actively engage in a
meaningful cause that directly benefits those in our own community. This year,
we're choosing to support the Canadian Cancer Society through our participation
in the Hockey Fights Cancer Campaign for the months of November and December.
months of November and December, in honour of the millions of Canadians
fighting cancer, we are asking all teams to tape their sticks in purple
and wears a white cancer ribbon sticker on their
helmets (ribbons and tape will be provided).
This small gesture signifies our collective commitment to this vital
cause and our solidarity with those confronting cancer's challenges.
Some of you
may not be aware that one of the U12A boys Woolwich Minor Hockey families, Todd
Roes, has been fighting a three year battle against terminal lung cancer. Erin Roes and her son’s U12A team have
launched an online campaign for Hockey Fights Cancer with the Canadian Cancer
Society. As an Association
we can use this site to make our donations and join the boys Woolwich Minor
Hockey Association to raise funds. They
have set an ambitious goal, but they we're confident with everyone's effort to
share the link on social media with family, friends, co-workers and local
businesses that we can achieve this goal together. Let's see what we can accomplish together!
