Steel Rose Communications Battles CancerOctober 18th, 2012 by Jon Bey
This past weekend, the Steel Rose Ball Hockey Team battled hard in the Vancouver rain/torrential downpour to help defeat Cancer. Soaked to the skin, but a little rain certainly did not dampen anyone’s spirit or resolve. An amazing event, a lot of fun, but also a lot of hard work, devoted to a worthy cause.
“The battle against Cancer is very dear to my heart. We lost a family member to this epidemic suddenly this week and it has reminded us again how much more we have to do to beat Cancer. My wife Haven is a cancer survivor and thrivor and her efforts battling Cancer inspired me to create the Steel Rose Ball Hockey Team.” Jon Bey – Steel Rose Communications CEO
“At the opening ceremonies, we were asked to write down the name or names of those we were playing for that day. While I started to write down a few names, I immediately realized it may have made more sense to simply write the name, ‘Too Many’. “ Chris Rudden – Digital Strategist and Social Media Specialist, Steel Rose Communications
I would also like to thank musician, Craig Northey, of the Odds, for joining our team as a celebrity player. He played nine games Saturday; and although exhausted, remained enthusiastic, and cheerful throughout the day. Great to have you on our team Craig!
We played five challenging games; but more importantly, we are close to reaching our Team goal of raising $15,000.00. It’s not too late to donate to our team, please follow this link to help us make a difference. http://bit.ly/UVFuLC
