The Cambridge RedHawks are getting ready to pay tribute to the Canadian Armed Forces this month during Military Appreciation Night at Galt Arena Gardens.
During their game on Nov. 25 against the Elmira Sugar Kings, the team will don special camouflage jerseys.
After the game, the jerseys are set to be part of a silent auction with proceeds being donated to Project Enlist.
Project Enlist is an organization that aims to dramatically accelerate critical research on traumatic brain injury (TBI), chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE) and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) in military veterans, athletes, youth and other at-risk groups.
With Corbett Funeral Home sponsoring the night and several other companies assisting with the cost of the jerseys, the RedHawks are able to donate 100 per cent of the proceeds to the cause.
The RedHawks last played during their Remembrance Day game on Nov. 11 when they lost 3-1 to the St. Catharines Falcons and are back in action this weekend with a pair of games beginning on Friday night in Caledon against the Bombers.
They return home on Saturday to host the Listowel Cyclones.
The team currently sits in 5th place in the Midwestern Conference of the Greater Ontario Junior Hockey League with a 9-8-1-0 record.
