Smokies join the fight against cancer

The Smoke Eaters encourage all fans to wear yellow to Friday's game to show their support in the fight against cancer

The Trail Smoke Eaters hope to see a golden turnout at the game Friday, as the Smokies team up with the Canadian Cancer Society to raise funds to fight cancer for their match against the West Kelowna Warriors at the Cominco Arena.

The Smoke Eaters encourage all fans to wear yellow to show their support in the fight against cancer, as yellow is the symbol of hope and the signature color for the Canadian Cancer Society.

“I am hoping to spread the word and get the stands packed with a sea of yellow for this Friday’s game,”  said Cancer Society coordinator Allison McCarthy in an email to the Times. “The schools played a big part and had their students color yellow daffodil color pages, which I will hang up in the arena as a Wall of Hope. It should be pretty cool.”

A host of golden daffodils created by students from Glenmerry, Webster, and St. Michaels elementary schools will greet hockey fans on the walls of the Cominco Arena. In recognition of the fundraiser, the Smoke Eaters will be wearing yellow arm bands and using yellow tape on their sticks for the game, as well as giving away yellow “Gloves are off, join the cancer fight” T-shirts in the first intermission courtesy of Teck and Kootenay Savings.

All fans age 12 and under will be admitted to the game for a toonie, which the Smoke Eaters will then donate to the Cancer Society.

Join the fight against cancer at the Trail Smoke Eaters Friday night home game versus the West Kelowna Warriors at 7:30 p.m.
