Lambton Shores Predators teaming up with Canadian Cancer Society

October 5, 2012 


FOREST, ONT -- The Lambton Shores Predator Junior 'B' Hockey Club has announced they will be partnering with the Canadian Cancer Society once again to raise awareness of the Relay for Life event in Forest and ongoing Breast Cancer research.

 

Funds raised during the Predators game on Saturday Oct. 13th @ 7:30 pm vs. Sarnia Legionnaires at the Shores Arena in Forest will be shared between breast cancer awareness campaigns and Relay For Life Forest.

 

With the assistance of local supporters and donors Breast Cancer Statistics have changed rapidly over the past several years. Progress is being made against all types of cancer.

 

Breast cancer is the most common cancer among Canadian women and one of the Canadian Cancer Society's most active areas of study. More and more women are surviving this disease, with mortality rates falling by more than 30 percent since 1986.

 

"Relay For Life Forest and the funds they have raised over the past eight years have gone towards the mission of the Canadian Cancer Society," Canadian Cancer Society Fundraising Coordinator Paula McKinlay said. "With the support of Relay, we can fund Canada’s best researchers, who work tirelessly towards the next breakthrough in cancer prevention, diagnosis and treatment to save more lives."

 

"As the fundraising coordinator for the Canadian Cancer Society, I take great pride in working with organizations such as The Lambton Shores Predators Jr. B Team who share, promote and support our mission and what we are trying to do: 'eradicate cancer and enhance the quality of life of those living with cancer.'"

 

“We are pleased to help support the Canadian Cancer Society and Relay For Life Forest”, says Roop Chanderdat, Predators Owner, President, and General Manager. “I encourage our community to come out to our game Saturday Oct. 13th and support this event”
