The Rainy River District Breast Health Network is pleased to be partnering with the Muskie girls’ hockey team this year to promote breast cancer awareness.
The players will be wearing their “think pink” attitudes during their home hockey tournament this weekend (Oct. 23-25).
“We’re encouraging everyone to come out to the season-opener game at 6:45 p.m. on Friday night,” said network chair Teresa Hazel.
“Our message is simple: early detection saves lives.
“It’s never too early to start practising total breast health,” Hazel added.
Total breast health consists of learning and doing regular breast self-examinations, having a clinical breast examination by a trained professional yearly, and having mammograms as required.
At Friday night’s game, volunteers will be distributing information and buttons to those who attend. They also will have “Quilt for a Cure” raffle tickets available for $2 each.
The draw for the quilt will be made at the biennial “Luncheon of Hope” on Saturday.
Come out to the Memorial Sports Centre on Friday night and cheer on the Muskie girls’ hockey team as they take on a winning attitude in the fight against breast cancer.
