Pink in the Rink returns for 10th year

Local News

The Sioux City Musketeers will hit the ice for the tenth year for Pink in the Rink. This popular event raises funds to help Siouxland men and women in the fight against breast cancer. Sport your pink and join us Saturday, October 21 at the Tyson Events Center. The puck drops at 7:00 p.m.

Over the past nine years, thanks to the generous support of our sponsors and the Siouxland community, we have raised over $450,000 benefiting breast cancer awareness and education efforts through the Susan G. Komen Greater Iowa Siouxland office and UnityPoint Health – St. Luke’s® Imaging and Breast Screening Center. We are very proud that our efforts have allowed the Siouxland Komen Affiliate provide funding for free mammograms at various facilities throughout our community and the Patient Navigator for breast cancer patients at the June E. Nylen Cancer Center.

In 2016, our fundraising dollars also helped fund the purchase of new equipment for our Imaging Center including new 3-D mammography equipment and lateral arm equipment to provide improved access for stereotactic biopsies. Our organizations are dedicated to the unique health care needs of both men and women, especially the importance of ensuring overall breast health.

In addition to attending the game, you can support Pink in the Rink by purchasing event-specific short sleeve t-shirts for only $15, long sleeve for $20 and youth shirts for $10.
