Ladies, Help the Capitals Rock the Pink!
A Hockey Mom fist bump to the Washington Capitals who are helping in the fight against cancer with some special initiatives during the month of October (National Breast Cancer Awareness Month).
During home games on Oct. 11, 13 and 18, the Caps will host a player-worn practice jersey auction. The jerseys will feature the player’ names and numbers screened in pink in addition to a pink ribbon. Several jerseys will be auctioned off each night, and all money raised will be donated to the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure. There will also be an informational Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure table at each of the games. At the home opener on Saturday, Oct. 11, when the Capitals announce the attendance, they will ask fans to donate $1 upon exit, with all money raised going toward Hockey Fights Cancer.
Hockey Fights Cancer Night highlights the schedule. On Oct. 18, Caps fans that have battled, beaten, helped treat or been personally touched by breast cancer will be honored in an on-ice ceremony prior to that night’s game against the New Jersey Devils. The participants will wear pink t-shirts with the Caps logo on the front and the Hockey Fights Cancer logo on the back. Players Matt Bradley and Shaone Morrisonn, who both lost their mothers to cancer, will take part in the ceremony.
So Caps fans, let's do our part in helping hockey fight cancer - make a donation and bid for the rocking pink jerseys!
