Raising Hope

Released by Cst. T. Wolbeck, Chwk RCMP


n Saturday February 18, 2012, the 5th annual Battle of the Badges hockey game will take place. The game will be played between the Hope Fire Department and the Hope RCMP. All of the proceeds from the game will go to Cops For Cancer.


"This is such a fun event to watch and for a great cause," said Cst. Tracy Wolbeck. "Police and fire often cross paths in a routine day and a real bond is built among emergency service workers. It's fun to watch that dynamic play out during three periods of good hockey, it's really a nice way to spend a winter afternoon."

The funds raised will be specifically going to the Hope RCMP member who takes part in the Tour de Valley bike ride in September. All members of this crew have a steep fundraising requirement they have to fulfill before becoming part of the team. The proceeds from the hockey game will go toward that fundraising effort.

The hockey game will be held at the Hope arena at 2:30 PM and tickets can be purchased at the Hope RCMP detachment. Tickets for adults are $10 and students are $5. There is also a family rate of $20 for two adults and two kids. Children two years and under are free.
