The Kamloops Blazers, with the help of season-ticket holders, fans and sponsors, contributed $283,222 to community partners and local organizations, according to a club press release.

Highlights include the donation of $13,000 worth of tickets to the Kamloops Minor Hockey Association. KMHA teams were also able to raise $47,000 through the Blazers’ fundraiser ticket program.

Other fundraising efforts include the CIBC Run for the Cure, Movember, Teddy Bear and Food Bank Nights, Christmas Amalgamated and Bowl for Kids Sake, which benefits Big Brother and Big Sisters of Kamloops.

The Blazers help out with Special Olympics floor hockey and Peter Puck, and players visit patients at Royal Inland Hospital.

The Blue and Orange also continued its partnership with the Kamloops R.C.M.P for the E.D.G.E (Educate, Develop, Grow, Excel) program.
