The Kemptville 73’s hockey team is participating in Movember. The players have raised over $5,500 for men’s health so far. The Movember movement brings in funds and aims to raise awareness about prostate cancer, testicular cancer, mental health and suicide prevention.
Jason York, 73’s co-owner and coach, says the players are committed to making a difference in the community. He noted there’s a friendly competition between the rookies and veterans, to see which team can raise more money for Movember. The rookies are at $3,200 and the vets have brought in $2,200. Movember wraps up on Saturday.
York explained hockey is about life lessons and it’s important for players to give back. He says he’s really proud of his team for stepping up and coming up with some great ideas to help out.
