Fundraise for Life in Saskatchewan 2013
Huskie Men's Hockey Hair Cut
Support the fight against cancer by supporting our Fundraise for Life event!
Five members of the University of Saskatchewan Huskie men's hockey team have paired with the Canadian Cancer Society and Andrew Bell, a young cancer survivor, to raise money and awareness for cancer in support services in Saskatchewan.
Zak Stebner and four of his teammates, Cody Smuk, Craig McCallum, Kyle Aschim and Matthew Delahey, motivated by Andrew's courage, are growing their hair to donate at the end of the season.
Andrew will become part of the team and be with the Huskies every step of the way in the run to the 2013 CIS PotashCorp University Cup Presented by Co-op hosted in Saskatoon March 14-17. The Huskies' goal is to fundraise $1,000 for each head of hair to be chopped for cancer.
Andrew was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma when he was four. This type of cancer attacks immature cells in the sympathetic nervous system, which aids in the control of most of the body's internal organs. After seven rounds of chemo, a surgery to remove the tumor, radiation and a stem cell transplant in Calgary, Andrew has made a full recovery. He is ready to share his love of hockey and story with Saskatchewan.

Where the money goes
The money raised from this event helps the Canadian Cancer Society fund community-based support services for people living with cancer and their families, and provide reliable and up-to-date information on cancer, risk reduction and treatment. As with every donation made to the Canadian Cancer Society through Saskatchewan based events, 94 cents from every dollar raised by this campaign will stay in the province.
Online pledging saves money
Every pledge takes us one step further in the fight against cancer. Online pledging is secure and it saves the Canadian Cancer Society money by reducing administrative costs.
Thanks for your support.
