Jumpstart wins with $8,000 raised at charity hockey game

TERRACE RCMP kept its championship title for another year at the Guns 'n' Hoses charity hockey game against the Terrace Fire Department.

TERRACE RCMP kept its championship title for another year at the Guns ‘n’ Hoses charity hockey game against the Terrace Fire Department Nov. 8.

In its fifth year, the game raised approximately $8,000 for Jumpstart, a charitable program created by Canadian Tire that helps financially disadvantaged kids participate in organized sport and recreation by helping to cover registration, equipment and/or transportation costs.

This is the third year that I’ve played in the Guns N’ Hoses game. It is for a great cause. Jumpstart is equipping kids for life. Participation in organized sport and recreation increases a child’s chance for success, says Inspector Dana Hart, Officer in Charge of the Terrace RCMP Detachment. Everyone had a great time, and it was a bonus to keep our championship title.

The winner of the Puck Toss Canucks Package, donated by Hawk Air, Save On Foods, and Rosedale on Robson, was Nigel McLellan.

Thank you to Bryan Gascon, Canadian Tire, and the City of Terrace for their donations that made this event possible.
