hockey-generic-1There will be plenty of pink on the ice during the 3rd annual Pink In The Rink fundraiser.

For the third straight year, the Bert Hunt arena will be covered in pink as the Female Bantam Warriors are coming together in the fight against breast cancer with their “Pink In The Rink” fundraiser on Sunday afternoon.

The fundraising event was started by Warriors assistant coach Jocelyn MacLeod while she was in university and two years ago she brought it to the Friendly City for the Warriors.

Since then, the team has came together each year to put on this event and help raise funds for local families affected by breast cancer and the Canadian Cancer Society.

The players do the planning each year and really enjoy putting the event together.

“It’s a lot of fun, you learn a lot of things,” said Josee Aitken, captain of the Warriors.  “Last year I was the media release person and this year, I was the person that had to get the music, the emcee and talk to the breast cancer association.”

With just a few days to go before the game, Aitken says everything has come together nicely.

“It sounds like everything is planned out and set to go,” she said.  “The only thing we have left is getting donations from other businesses, which we’ve got quite a few already.”

The game on Sunday will be a full event as the Warriors take on the Regina Cougars.  

“It will be an interesting game to watch and at the game there will be a raffle table, puck toss and other events,” explained Aitken.  “At the end of the game, we will be giving a cheque on behalf of the Cancer Society to the Gray family.”

Alex Gray, a member of the Warriors, will accept the cheque on behalf of her grandmother, who has won her own battle with breast cancer and is an avid hockey fan and supporter of the team.

The game goes on Sunday at 12:15pm at the Bert Hunt Arena.
