Rockets lace up in pink for breast cancer fight

The Kelowna Rockets will add some pink to their lines at their WHL game on Saturday in support of the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation.

The Rockets will don special jerseys, pink skate laces and pink hockey tape as they take on the Brandon Wheat Kings, 7 p.m., at Prospera Place for their annual Pink Power Play night.

The team invites their fans to wear pink as well for a chance to win a great door prize. A pink puck toss will be happening during the game as well.

For a $5 donation, fans will have a chance to hit the targets on the ice with their pucks and win prizes.

The Rockets will also auction off their pink jerseys with proceeds going to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation.

“It’s exciting to have the Kelowna Rockets on board in support of the breast cancer cause,” says Barb Hoy, volunteer co-run director for Kelowna’s Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation CIBC Run for the Cure.

“They all have mothers, sisters, wives and girlfriends and that means breast cancer can have an impact on their lives. ”
