Letter: Aces deserve thanks for fundraising effort

I want to extend a heartfelt thank you the Alaska Aces Hockey Team for hosting their annual “Paint the Rink Pink Event,” which is a fundraiser for those facing cancer.

The American Cancer Society benefits from this fundraiser and we use the dollars raised to support Alaskans who might need a helping hand when going through treatment. We focus on supporting individuals with gas, food or transportation costs. As a patient navigator for the American Cancer Society, I see how valuable these grants are for those in need.

I am proud of the Alaska Aces, our home team and my Alaska community for making this event so special.

Go Aces!
