Cougars Host ‘Breast Cancer Awareness Night’
Prince George, B.C. – The Cariboo Cougars will wear pink jerseys this afternoon in recognition of a very special cause.
The club will host it’s second annual ‘Breast Cancer Awareness Night’ where proceeds from the entry-by-donation game versus the Vancouver North West Giants will go to support the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation.
The Cougars partnered with The Taba Group again this year to make it happen. Last year’s inaugural event raised $2,300.
“Yeah, it’s something that we’ve done the last two years with Art and Shawn Julian of The Taba Group purchasing the jerseys,” said Cougars GM and head coach Trevor Sprague. “Shawn’s mom battled breast cancer for part of her life and passed away last summer so it’s touches close to home with the Julian family.”
He also acknowledged it’s a cause many of us can relate with.
“Yes, we can and it’s something you see people pull together on and though we haven’t been able to find a cure, maybe one of these years we’ll be close.”
Puck drop is 3:45 this afternoon at the Kin 1 arena.
