Surrey Beavers Rugby Club Ruck for a Cure --- $13 000 RAISED!!!
October 29, 2012, Surrey, BC: It rained and it poured but that did not stop friends, family, alumni and general on lookers from stopping by the Surrey Beavers Rucking For A Cure event on Saturday, October 27th. With Three matches on the schedule, the 40 year old Surrey Beavers Athletic Club worked for every win and every dollar collected in support of breast cancer research and programs for the Canadian Cancer Society.
The weather did not dampen spirits with some of the club's retired executive pulling out their cleats to get in on the action. Executive member at large and former first division player, Derek Finlayson joined the first game with the third division players, helping to take a win over the Ridge Meadow Bruins. "We couldn't let all the young guys have all the fun," remarked Finlayson. "It felt great to get in on a game in support of a fantastic cause."
The Beaver supporters were evident as the sidelines were dotted with tents and people bundled up against the elements to cheer on their team. The guys working the hot dog and hamburger tent were sold out by the time the first division team was set for a rematch with their rival, the Langley Rugby Club. As things wrapped up at the field, the teams dressed in pink shirts and ties got down to business at the Beavelodge with first division player and club executive, Nick Bruce kicking off the live auction for 15 pink game-worn jerseys. "This is what we were hoping for in planning Rucking For a Cure, bringing the rugby community together in support of breast cancer," said Bruce. "I'm really proud of our club and what we have put together for a first year event."
Bruce and all of the Surrey Beavers club members and alumni should be very proud of their efforts. "The dust has settled and the dollars have been counted. We have blown away our $3,000 goal and managed to raise over $13,000," exclaimed club president, Rob Brown with his signature yodel. "There are so many people to thank, but we could not have raised that kind of cash without the support of our alumni members and the community who are out in force today." The Surrey Beavers Athletic Club certainly knows how to mark a 40 year anniversary.
