“Pink the Rink” supports RRMC Breast Care Program

RUTLAND—On Monday, April 16, the Castleton University women’s hockey team presented the physicians and staff at Rutland Regional Medical Center’s Foley Cancer Center with a giant pink check representing proceeds raised from the 10th Anniversary Pink the Rink event to benefit the RRMC breast care program.

More than $5,700 was raised at the event that took place at Spartan Arena in Rutland on January 26.

“The annual Pink the Rink game is important to the Castleton University Women’s ice hockey team and our local region. We are pleased to help raise awareness and support in the fight against breast cancer,” said Ashley Salerno, head coach of the team.

“We continue to be grateful to our players and fans for their generous support annually for Pink in the Rink,” Salerno added.

Since its inception in 2008, close to $60,000 has been raised in support of the program.

“We appreciate the ongoing partnership and collaboration with Castleton University and the women’s hockey program in support of the breast care program,” said Linda McKenna, director of oncology at Rutland Regional’s Foley Cancer Center. “The team’s commitment to this important cause has been truly amazing.”

Also on hand for the presentation were Castleton University President Karen Scolforo and Castleton Athletic Director Deanna Tyson, as well as the Foley Cancer Center staff and its physicians, Dr. Allan Eisemann and Dr. Rick Lovett, who both expressed their appreciation for Castleton’s ongoing generosity and support of breast care patients throughout our region.
