Hockey tourney supports Breast Cancer Awareness Month

The Comox Valley peewee Tier 1 Chiefs hosted a “Pink the Rink” Hockey Tournament on Thanksgiving weekend. Participants came from Campbell River to Victoria, and the Sunshine Coast and Ridge Meadows. After each game, an MVP award (pink socks) was given to each team’s best player, as well as a “Digger Award” (pink puck) for each team’s hardest worker.

The Chiefs went 2-2 in the round robin, scoring wins against the Sunshine Coast and Peninsula. They lost to Kerry Park and Ridge Meadows.

In the semi-finals, the Chiefs lost 5-1 to longstanding rival Nanaimo Clippers.

Every Comox Valley player sported pink on almost all their equipment. Team volunteers raised $480 through a bake sale to support the Canadian Cancer Society’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

The peewee Chiefs, sponsored by RT Contracting, represent the Comox Valley in league 1 of the Vancouver Island Amateur Hockey Association (VIAHA). Thank you to all the volunteers, sponsors, and those who donated money and gift basket items for all your hard work and generosity. Thank you for making “Pink the Rink” a resounding success.
