Rockets grow big (and small) mo’s in Movember

Kelowna WHL team raises plenty of money in annual men’s health fundraiser

For the second straight year, Kelowna Rockets player Conner Bruggen-Cate raised over $1,000 on his own as the Rockets helped out men’s health in the annual Movember fundraiser.

Bruggen-Cate led the charge for the Rockets raising a stunning $1,329 on his own while Liam Kindree raised the second highest amount with $1,004. Ted Brennan rounded out the top three with his impressive $624 raised.

This year the Rockets raised a whopping total of $6,126 as a team.

Through the month of November the Rockets grew their moustaches, and collected donations for those moustaches through the Movember Foundation. Money was raised to tackle some of the biggest health issues faced by men: prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and poor mental health.
