The Lloydminster Bobcats are in the fight to help beat Childhood Cancer!
On Wednesday, September 20th the Lloydminster Bobcats will not only be hosting the Grand Prairie Storm, they will also be hosting Childhood Cancer Awareness Night.
It will be a special night at the Centennial Civic Centre as the Bobcats recognize childhood brain cancer survivor, Jerrod Russell as he continues to raise funds and bring awareness to such an important cause.
In an effort to raise awareness, the Bobcats will wear ribbons on their helmets for each game in September, which the team began doing on September 15th.
Also, the funds from the Frisbee Toss on September 20th will be donated to Childhood Cancer, while awareness materials will be available for viewing in the lobby of the Civic Centre.
“We are more than thrilled as an organization to have the opportunity to bring more awareness to such a crucial cause,” said Bobcats Head Coach and General Manager Travis Clayton. “As a father with children, I can’t imagine what families have to go through trying to deal with childhood cancer.”
The Bobcats will honour Russell during the first intermission.
“It’s incredible to see what someone like Jerrod has been able to accomplish so far in his life and it’s an honour to be able to recognize him,” Clayton said.
If you know of any child/family going through this battle right now, nominate that child for tickets to attend the game on September 20th. Nominations can be made to firstname.lastname@example.org or contact Lana at 403-901-8385.
