Pink the Rink for Breast Cancer
Carleton University Women’s Hockey Team, Ottawa, ON
This year the Carleton University women's hockey team decided to host a Pink the Rink hockey game to show their support for the fight against women's breast cancer. The girls decided to support this cause because it meant so much to so many of them. The girls organized sponsorship donations, took care of ticket sales, organized a silent auction, took in baking for a bake sale, and even went so far as to enlist the help of the Women's Varsity Rugby team to help out to accomplish all of this. The atmosphere in the rink was a very positive one and it truly showed how powerful sport can be and how powerful a team of young ambitious women can be when they want to make a difference.
