Squirts raise funds for charity

Four local boys from Ram Hockey changed out of the orange and into pink to show their support for those celebrating recovery, and those who lost the courageous battle with cancer. On April 20-22, there was a three-on-three hockey tournament at Ferris State University for many age groups. Aidan Hoffman, Riley Pitcher, Theo Thrun and Corbin Venckus played in the Squirt Travel AA bracket as Team HotShots (pictured). They dedicated their efforts to raise $905 for Susan Komen Foundation and $815 for Oncology Nurses Reach Out (ONRO).

Susan Komen Foundation will use funds to provide mammograms (cost $150) and wigs (cost $50). ONRO helps patients and families from out of town with the basics of gas, food and shelter.

More important than the championship trophy—which they proudly brought home—was being able to serve others while playing the game they love.
