Record numbers at ECCC game

Published on Tuesday, 14 February 2023 06:11

For close to a decade - nine years in fact - the annual Stick It To Cancer fundraising hockey game has been part of life as a student of Major Pratt.

For the Major Pratt Trojans and their opponents - who more often than not have been the Roblin Raiders - they’re wearing shocking pink hockey jerseys.

Their hockey socks are pink and so are most of their skate laces too. In fact, many of the Roblin Raiders had their sticks taped with pink hockey tape and pink laces in their skates too. The concourse of the Russell Regional Multiplex was awash in pink too as the generosity of the communities surrounding Russell (and the 13 communities who are under the umbrella of the Expanding Community Cancer Care project) shone bright with the donations to the rainbow and silent auction.

As he has for every Stick It To Cancer game, Bruce Hutton of Art Farm produced the jersey’s, the tuques and the hoodies, all on sale for the cause.

Check out all the details in this week's Russell Banner!
