With 1 in 9 women being diagnosed with breast cancer in
their lifetime, it’s very possible that someone on your team has been touched
by this disease. You can help your players see that they can make a
difference in the lives of hockey moms.
What is Hockey Hair for Breast Cancer?
It’s a unique and powerful way for young hockey players (and the adults in their lives) to raise money to help create a future without breast cancer. And it’s a wonderful way to show support for the women with breast cancer in your hockey community.
When is it?
The first ever Hockey Hair for Breast Cancer starts on January 31st, 2014 and finishes on the last game of your hockey season.
How Does It Work?
Players, coaches, parents/guardians (and other adults/siblings associated with a hockey team) sign up to raise money and get involved in 1 of these 3 ways:
- Grow Your Flow – Pledge to not chop your flow and to tell people why it’s getting so long and unruly!
- Pink Your Flow– It’s as easy as styling your flow pink – we want to see your best pink hair!
- Pink The Rink– Dedicate one of your games to raising money and awareness for CBCF.
Why Should My Team Participate?
This is a unique and fun way for your team to use their awesome hockey hair to raise money to help create a future without breast cancer! And for young players to show support for hockey moms (and all women of course) who have been affected by breast cancer.
Beyond that, Hockey Hair for Breast Cancer teaches youngsters about the importance of living back – something that great hockey players are known for.
This is your team’s chance to champion and fund a cause that affects them personally – and flaunt a memorable flow on and off the ice!
