'Pink the Rink' game set for Jan. 25

The Yorkton Hyundai Terriers will be looking to give something back to the community as they host their second annual ‘Pink the Rink’ game.

The game will be held Jan. 25, when the Weyburn Red Wings visit the Farrell Agencies Arena for the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League action.

“It’s an opportunity for the Terriers to give back to the local community,” said Ryan Kormos, Marketing and Public Relations manager with the team.

Kormos explained the players will be wearing themed jerseys which incorporate the familiar pink ribbon which symbolizes cancer awareness, a ‘pink army’ feature representing the fight people facing cancer must put up, and inspirational words in the design.

Players have bought their jerseys, and instead of their own name they will have the name of a friend, or loved one who has faced cancer.

Following the game there will be a presentation of the jerseys from the players to those whose name was on their back for the night, said Kormos.

In addition, a couple of extra jerseys will be available through a fundraiser.

Three dollars from each walk-up game day ticket will also be donated, along with other fundraisers throughout the game.

Last season, the first for the event just shy of $7,600 was donated through the local Health Foundation to go towards equipment to help with the early detection of breast cancer.

This year funds will go to Brayden Ottenbreit Close Cuts.
