Those looking to catch all the action on Sunday are encouraged to bring donations of non-perishable food or consider offering a financial contribution

 

Lethbridge Mayor's 2022 Community Hockey Challenge is set to take place on Sunday, November 27 at 4 p.m. at the ATB Centre's east/blue arena.

Mayor Blaine Hyggen & Lethbridge city staff will face off against a number of community partners that include several assistant coaches from the Lethbridge Hurricanes and staff from Lethbridge College and Exhibition Park.

Guest coaches include the Deputy Premier Kaycee Madu, Minister of Infrastructure and MLA of Lethbridge East, Nathan Neudorf, Deputy LPS Chief Gerald Grobmeier, City Councillors Mark Campbell and Jenn Schmidt-Rempel, as well as Rob Miyashiro, Executive Director of the Lethbridge Senior Citizens Organization.

Hyggen first introduced the challenge last winter to support local food banks ahead of the holiday season. Nearly $4,500 was raised in food and monetary donations.

"This Sunday, starting at 4:00 pm, there will be different performances from the figure skating club that’ll be there as well, some sledge hockey and ringette, so multiple things are going to be happening and Timbit Hockey, so you’ll get to see little kids play as well. It’s going to be a lot of fun.” said Mayor Hyggen
