IHIT and the CFSEU-Gang Task Force are hosting a charity hockey game today in support of the YMCA’s Youth at Risk Program.

This intense battle will be held at the Surrey Sports and Leisure Complex, 16555 Fraser Hwy. on Saturday, July 16 at 4pm.

The “BC Rescuers” have challenged “The Chiefs” to a duel on ice and all proceeds, up to $5,000, will be matched by the Scotiabank.

The Chiefs’ team consists of a group of seasoned, old school hockey players who have risen to the top brass ranks within the Lower Mainland municipal police, RCMP, CBSA, IHIT and the CFSEU-Gang Task Force.

The BC Rescuers are the defending Women’s World Champions – 2009 World Police and Fire Games.

“We are inviting the public to come out and be witness to this event and cheer on your favorite team while supporting a great cause,” says Sgt. Jennifer Pound.

There will be a silent auction and raffle prizes to be won. The Tim Hortons community cruiser will also be on site.

Many sponsors  are helping to make this function a success such as Surrey Parks and Recreation, Cooperators Insurance, Scotiabank, The Big Ridge Brewing Company, The Comfort Inn, Clearwest Solutions, The Hockey Shop and Closet Designer Guys.

Admission is $5 for adults and children over 10 years old and a cost of $10 for families.

The YMCA Youth at Risk Program is also partnered with the Canucks Autism Network and some of the highlights of the program include:

• Provides healthy activities that help to combat the gang attraction;

• Gives kids a safe place to be a kid and enjoy sports;

• Gives vulnerable youth and low-income families a chance to attend YMCA summer camps which build lasting memories, friendships and self worth;

• Ensures low-income families stay active and engaged through YMCA memberships, sports and programs;

• Provides struggling youth and adults with the help they need to transition to full time employment;

• Ensures that low-income school-aged children benefit from literacy, recreation, sports and homework assistance;

• Offers access to childcare and support services for families in need.

• Assists newcomers to Canada as they make the transition to a new life and home;

• Provides vulnerable youth a chance to build leadership skills.
