The Collingwood Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation CIBC Run for the Cure event organizers are once again teaming up with the Collingwood Blues Hockey team. At the Friday, September 26th home game, local event organizers will be supporting the Blues and educating families and fans about breast health.
“Last year’s education awareness event was so successful, we are again “Thinking Pink” at the Eddie Bush arena,” says new Run Director Jennifer Nichol.

The Blues will suit up wearing pink armbands and sporting pink hockey tape on their sticks, donated by Collingwood’s Play It Again Sports. Dale West of the Blues reports that “I talked to Huntsville Otters and they will gladly take part by wearing arm bands and pink tape as well.”
And, back by popular demand, a limited number of pink feather boas will be available for a donation to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation. The Eddie Bush arena will be decked out in Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation banners and CIBC Run for the Cure volunteers will be on hand to raise awareness for breast health with buttons and brochures. Fans will also have a chance to win some special Blues items that have been “pinked” for the occasion.  Face off time against the Otters is 8PM on Friday at the Collingwood Arena on Hurontario Street.
The 5th annual Collingwood CIBC Run for the Cure event will have Blues players manning the volunteer stations at the run/walk in Harbourview Park on Sunday, October 5th.  Volunteer Director Juanita Hodgson is still accepting adult and student volunteers for the event; contact her at
