Terriers go pink

The Yorkton Terriers went pink to raise money to help fight cancer. 

Each team member wore a jersey bearing the name of someone who had to combat cancer, and a silent auction, jersey sales and a portion of ticket sales went to raise $7,526.50 for Brayden Ottenbreit’s Close Cuts for Cancer and the Health Foundation.
