Huskies show their support during Diabetes awareness month
Submitted By Scott Soulliere on Thursday, November 2, 2017
November is national diabetes awareness month.  To show their support, the Pestell Group Atom A Huskies will be wearing blue skate laces.  The team would like to thank Play it Again Sports (Kitchener) for outfitting the boys with blue laces for this cause.

If you'd like to see this hard-working group in action, you can catch them on most Tuesday evenings at the WRC.  You're welcome to an entire seat, but you'll only need the edge!
