The Castlegar Gentlemen’s Hockey League (CGHL) is looking to ‘lose the booze’ for the month of February with a goal of raising $1000 for cancer research.
Lose the Booze is a month-long alcohol-free challenge during February to raise funds for the BC Cancer Foundation and its research.
Anyone feeling up to the challenge is asked to head on over to losethebooze.ca and sign up under team CGHL or just make a donation if you don’t feel like losing the booze yourself.
“It’s something we’re definitely looking to get some momentum on,” said Bergen Price, leading the CGHL booze losers. “So far it’s doing well, I think the guys are definitely interested in donating. Our first games are on Thursday so we’ll see how people stick to it.”
With February 1 being the Super Bowl, Price said the general consensus was to officially start the challenge the day after.
This is fine for anyone looking to join in a little late. The challenge is intended to be 28 days, so the sign up fee is $28 to cover each day and allow late joiners.
Your commitment isn’t set in stone, however. If a drink must be had — maybe a wedding or work party — a free pass is available for a $25 donation.
All donations go towards cancer research in various fields. One in three Canadians are affected by cancer every year.
