Steel Rose Communications Battles Cancer

October 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 BeySteel 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 want to first provide thanks to everyone at the Canadian Cancer Society and to our fearless leader, coach and manager, who all made it possible for me to participate and contribute to this event and cause!

    Though the event is over, our fight continues and therefore we are still seeking donations, I urge anyone who reads this blog to donate and even if it’s $10, every little bit counts. Like Chris Rudden, I had a lot of trouble writing down ‘The Name’ on my jersey and so I followed another teammates lead and just started writing them all….too many! We need to continue to fight this horrible disease and what better to do it through a little old’ fashioned Road Hockey!!!

    Looking forward to Road Hockey to Conquer Cancer, Vancouver 2013!!!

    I just wanted to thank you all for participating last Saturday at Road Hockey to Conquer Cancer and for sharing your experience on the blog. I work with the Canadian Cancer Society and had the chance to come down and check out the event. I was so inspired and impressed by the dedicated teams who played it out, all day in the rain. Your support and positive attitude contributed to an amazing energy despite the weather. Thanks for joining our fight for life! We’re already looking forward to next year!
