Walking With the Cougars
Prince George, B.C.- The Prince George Cougars are taking ‘steps’ to connect with youth in the community. A new program, called ” Walk To School With The Cougars” is being launched this morning.“Our entire organization is committed to not only putting forth an excellent hockey product on the ice, but we are equally committed to being excellent ambassadors and role models for youth in our community,” said Prince George Cougars Vice President, Business Andy Beesley. “This initiative provides a great opportunity for kids to get to know our players on a personal level, while also promoting a healthy, safe and active lifestyle.”
Cougars players and Rowdy Cat will make the first journey this morning with students of St. Mary’s Catholic School. Those interested in taking park are asked to meet in the parking lot of Earl’s Retaurant at 7:30 before heading to school together.
At the end of the school day, the Prince George Cougars bus will pick up the students and take them to the designated St. Mary’s drop off zones.
Additional schools and dates will be announced in the upcoming weeks.
“When you see our players and Rowdy Cat walking the students of St. Mary’s to school on Monday morning, please honk and wave” says Beesley who adds “But please also be mindful of school zone signs everywhere and to drive slowly anytime you see children walking.”
