Hockey fights cancer night within PMH
Members of the U18 AAA Parkland Rangers were on hand in three local communities Feb. 24 to present proceeds from their Hockey Fights Cancer night, which was held back on Oct. 30, 2021. The annual recognition night raised a total of $3,600 dollars, with a split of $1,200 each presented to three Community Cancer Programs within the Prairie Mountain Health region. Chemotherapy Units in Dauphin, Russell and Swan River were grateful to receive the contributions, which were primarily raised through game night donations, sponsors and an auction of special pink Rangers game-worn hockey jerseys donated by Embroidery by Design in Dauphin.
