The Kimberley Dynamiters will be wearing green jerseys for the month of November to support an important cause.
The Nitros are going green as part of a Game Worn Jersey fundraiser for Kidney Cancer Canada, supporting research and treatment.
Kimberley resident Cliff Boychuck is spearheading the initiative.
He also suffers from Stage Four kidney cancer.
“I’ve been told it incurable and I will be on drunks for as long as I am alive,” Boychuck says. “The drugs are very tough on the body and a lot of side effects. They have allowed me to exceed my life expectancy that I was told when I was first diagnosed. I have several friends that have died from kidney cancer.”
He’s thankful to team up with the Dynamiters to create a Kidney Cancer Canada awareness campaign.
“The Dynamiters will be starting on November 2nd to wear the jerseys for all home games and road games until November 23rd to do the final auction and final sale of the jerseys,” Boychuck says.
The fundraiser also honours Norma Ennis, who died in 2009 following a battle with kidney cancer.
