For the month of October, the Fernie Ghostriders have been wearing special pink jerseys for breast cancer awareness. A silent auction has been conducted throughout the month to raise money for the Fernie Friends for Friends program, which provides financial and emotional support for individuals and families who are undergoing cancer treatment.
Chris and Shelley Moulton from Friends for Friends were recently recognized as Volunteers of the Year at the 2013 Community & Business Excellence Awards, in acknowledgement of the important and valuable contribution their charity makes to the Elk Valley. The 2012 jersey auction raised $3,400 for the cause, and the Ghostriders are hoping to exceed this amount this year.
Bids are accepted by email or text message until 12 midnight on Thursday, October 31. Instructions and current bid amounts can be found by clicking on the photos of the team in their pink jerseys at www.fernieghostriders.com
