The Parkland Unit of the Canadian Cancer Society received a donation from a Yorkton Minor Hockey Association team this week. Ed Zawatsky, head coach of the the Sherring Gold Pee Wee 'AA' Terrier hockey team asked his players to select a charity of their choice. In a hockey game this past season against Melville, all money collected at the gates would be donated to the Canadian Cancer Society, more specifically, children's cancer. The players put pink tape on their sticks and pink laces on their skates. The team was one of the most successful teams this season in minor hockey.
