A group of Delta Secondary students is organizing a charity hockey game at the Ladner Leisure Centre Sunday.

Anybody can drop in and take part for a minimum donation of $5.

The game "just evolved into this big charity event," says Grade 11 student Chris McCluskie.

Proceeds will support Cops for Cancer fundraising efforts for the Canadian Cancer Society.

Katie Smillie, another organizer, says her sister Mirren was one of the four students at DSS who had their heads shaved last week when the Cops for Cancer Tour de Valley team stopped at the Ladner high school.

Organizers are hoping around 200 people will come out to the game.

Smillie says she started a Facebook page for the event and it met with a lot of interest.

"In an hour we had 100 saying they were coming," she says.

Referees and goalies have been lined up to participate and organizers already have custom jerseys (practice jerseys with stenciled logos and numbers) ready for the game.

The charity hockey game is scheduled for Sunday, Oct. 9 from 11 p.m. to 1: 30 a.m. at the Ladner Leisure Centre.
