On November 30 the Sioux Lookout Bombers, in cooperation with the Rotary Club of Sioux Lookout, hosted their first annual Mental Health Awareness night, an initiative which was spearheaded by several Bombers players, including #26 Aiden Parker.
The Bombers shared that, “Between the auction of our special game worn jerseys, sale of wristbands, the 50/50 draw (conducted by the Rotary Club) and other donations, you raised $2840 in support of mental health, $1500 of which (is) going directly to local mental health programs, and the remainder to the national Movember campaign.”
On Jan. 7, during the first period intermission of the Bombers’ game against the visiting Fort Frances Lakers, representatives from the Bombers and Rotary Club of Sioux Lookout presented a cheque for $1500 to members of the Sioux Lookout Meno Ya Win Health Centre Foundation and (SLMHC) Mental Health and Addictions Program.
