Fire on Ice: Fire Department Hockey Game Raises $5,700
for Local Cancer Care
The North Huron and North Perth Fire Departments competed in a benefit hockey game on November 16th to raise funds for the Oncology Department at the Wingham & District Hospital. Thanks to the efforts of the firefighters the event raised $5,700 to support local cancer care.
This was the second year that the fire departments teamed up to put on the exhibition game to benefit the Hospital. It was a spirited and competitive match up with the North Perth Firefighters defeating the North Huron Firefighters 7 – 2.
Tyler Peel, a North Perth firefighter and host of the game, explained that, “firefighters are much more likely than the general population to be diagnosed with cancer because of their increased exposure to smoke. That’s why it’s so important to both departments to support the local cancer clinic”.
The chemotherapy clinic at the Wingham & District Hospital is the only cancer care facility in Huron and Bruce counties making it vitally important to the health of all the surrounding communities.
