BeneficiariesErin Banton and husband
In June 2015, at age 34, Erin was diagnosed with stage I Breast Cancer. From the start, she has fought with bravery, love, and grace; determined to show cancer her true strength. With the support from our amazing community and her family, Erin came out on top.
Less than two years later, in May 2017, Erin was diagnosed with stage IV Metastatic Breast Cancer. Without knowing exactly what to expect, Erin and Travis will likely encounter extra medical expenses and loss of wages at their full-time jobs as they will be caring for their three amazing boys, supporting one another, and putting Erin’s health first.
Our 2018 hockey game set records in both monies raised and attendance. Centre Ice Arena (our venue) was completely sold out with a standing room only crowd. 

UPDATE:

Our hearts broke on March 2, 2019 when Erin lost her battle and peacefully passed. Erin was a true warrior throughout her nearly four-year long journey living with metastatic breast cancer. She took pride in sharing her story publicly in order to help others also experiencing a cancer diagnosis. Erin left a legacy for others to follow and admire for years to come.
