    Kingston Frontenacs Help CCS with Hockey Fights CancerTM

    Kingston, ON - November 2, 2018 - Fans of the Kingston Frontenacs did a double-take when the team took to the ice of Leon’s Centre for the game vs. Peterborough on November 2 for their annual Hockey Fights Cancer game. In support of the Canadian Cancer Society FLA & The Waterways community office, and presented by Leon’s Kingston, the Frontenacs sported a different type of black and gold jersey, with a plaid pattern to draw attention to cancers that affect dads. This is the eighth consecutive season the Frontenacs have partnered with the Canadian Cancer Society to raise funds and awareness, and this year’s cause hits close to home for the entire club. The limited-edition jerseys— which are currently up for auction until November 30, 2018 with the net proceeds to benefit the Canadian Cancer Society’s programs - include the first names of all the dads of the players, staff, management, and owners of the club. 

    “We have a proud tradition of supporting cancer causes and raising awareness for different types of cancers and focusing on dads and the cancers they face really hits close to home,” says Justin Chenier, Executive Director of Business Operations with the Kingston Frontenacs. “The obvious cancer for men is prostate cancer, and in Canada 1 in 7 men will develop prostate cancer in his lifetime.”

    If you'd like to support the Kingston Frontenacs in their fundraising goals you can bid on the game jerseys by clicking here, or you can support some of the individual players by going to their Cancer Fighter web page, by clicking here, to make a donation directly to the Canadian Cancer Society.

We typically see limited edition jersey and/or stick raffles from the Frontenacs, plus swag and opportunities to take your selfie in the branded placard of the CCS area in the concourse to share on your social media pages and to show your support for those living with cancer in our communities! Don't forget your extra $$ - the Canadian Cancer Society usually does a bucket pass for your donations just after puck drop in the 1st period. With your help we can work towards our Vision of a world where no Canadian fears cancer.
