Face Off Against Cancer Raises Funds For Research, Support, and Advocacy

 
 

Lethbridge: Sore and tired hockey players left the ice at 7 o'clock September 7th, after playing the game for 24 hours.

 

The Face Off Against Cancer Hockey Challenge had teams playing sprodically over 24 hours to raise money for the Canadian Cancer Society.

 

Country 95's Patrick Burles took part in the event. He said there were some challenges he didn't expect when signing up.

 

"The muscles, for sure. They start to cramp up and lock up on you. About 5 AM, my calves started to cramp up on me and I've been fighting them a little bit. They been really great here, though. They have five massage therapists who are volunteering their time through the whole thing, so they've been keeping all of us going."

 

A total of $28, 000 was raised for groundbreaking cancer research, providing crucial support and information to people living with cancer right here in Lethbridge and surronding communities, educating Canadians on cancer prevention, and lobby all levels of government for healthy public policies.
