BARONS TO HONOR CANCER SURVIVORS AT HOME OPENER OCTOBER 19
By Josh Evans, OKC Barons on 10/18/2012
While playing a rough-and-tumble sport on the ice, the Oklahoma City Barons continue to show their benevolence and character in servicing the communities in and around the metro area.
An underlying theme to their productivity within the community is a focus on health and wellness. Many of the programs that are in place focus on that subject. For the youth, the Barons operate a Floor Hockey Caravan. The mobile unit not only exposes school-aged children to the sport of hockey, but allows the players and staff to extol the virtues of eating well and making healthy choices in life.
An extension of the wellness theme is the Barons partnership with Integris Men’s Health University. Last November, the Barons players, coaches and staff participated in growing mustaches in November. The Movember movement as it is known started in 2003 in Australia. The main goal of Movember is to raise awareness and funds for issues related to men’s health. The Barons players raised nearly $3,000 for the Movember Movement simply by adding facial hair to their upper lip for a month. Expect a similar look from the Barons this Movember.
Don’t miss out on the opportunity to get a FREE t-shirt that honors cancer survivors as well as drive away in a new car at the Barons home opener October 19. Faceoff against the San Antonio Rampage at the Cox Convention Center is 7 p.m. A variety of ticket packages are available to meet every individual or group need. Packages ranging from 7-game and 11-game packs to Full Season Seats are available. Call the Barons’ front office at 405-232-4625 for information on groups, Season Seats and other ticket packages.
