On Feb. 16, the Holy Cross men’s hockey program held its fourth annual “Pink the Rink” during its game vs. Connecticut.  The team wore special edition pink jerseys to show its support for breast cancer awareness. The jerseys were auctioned off throughout the game with all proceeds going to PINK Revolution, a Worcester-based charity committed to creating change in the lives of those touched by breast cancer.

“‘Pink the Rink’ was a major success. Although our team did not play our best and get the win, the overwhelming support from students, faculty, and the Worcester community was very apparent,” shares Brandon Nunn ’13, organizer of the event and one of the team’s leading goal scorers. “More than 2,000 people attended the game and helped to raise more than $8,500 for PINK Revolution. Hopefully, events like this will energize the entire Worcester community to continue the fight against breast cancer.”

A ceremonial puck drop featured Nunn’s mother, Randi Nunn. The day before the game he told NECN/Channel 3 about the special guest in an interview. “She underwent a battle with breast cancer and just finished her radiation and is doing okay. It will be very special for me to have her out on the ice doing the puck drop,” he told reporter Katelyn Tivnan.

A limited amount of special edition “Pink the Rink” t-shirts were sold, along with a chuck-a-puck competition during an intermission and a 50/50 raffle. Bay State Savings Bank donated the jerseys so all of the proceeds from the auction went to PINK Revolution.

Last year, Nunn started Power Play Points for PINK, where local businesses, community members, parents, and alumni pledge money for any goal that is scored during a power play in a men’s hockey home game.  Nunn scored one power play goal during the “Pink the Rink” game, bringing the total amount raised to more than $18,000 this season.
