In Memory of Wolverines broadcaster Wyatt Zieger’s, late brother Kyle, the Wolverines will be hosting their 2nd annual “Superhero Night” on February 4th, against the Spruce Grove Saints.
We ask fans and foes alike to come dressed up as their favourite Superhero or Villian in support of the night. Kids in costume (or under 6) get in free at the door and for Adults dressed up its just a $5 donation to Defeat Duchenne Canada.
The purpose of Superhero Night is to honour the memory of Wyatt’s brother Kyle who passed away from Duchenne’s Muscular Dystrophy and raise awareness and funds for those living with DMD.
Duchenne’s is the most common form of Muscular Dystrophy and is only found in males. There are an estimated 800 cases of DMD in Canada currently. For more information on DMD and Defeat Duchenne Canada: Defeat Duchenne Canada – Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy
With the help of our fans, sponsors, players and staff, last year we were able to raise $8000 for Defeat Duchenne Canada, the only National Charity dedicated to providing leadership in research, advocacy and support to ensure our boys and young men can live long and active lives.
Wyatt had this to say about the event
“This is obviously is a night that means a lot to myself and my family. Last year it touched my heart to see everyone who came out to support the night and dressed up as well. I appreciate the support I’ve received from the staff, players and community and I’m really excited to be able to bring this night back again.”
The game itself will be on Sunday, February 4th, at 2:30. During the game we will be live auctioning the players game worn Superhero Jerseys with all proceeds going to Defeat Duchenne Canada. Following the game we will have a post-game skate with your Wolverines, don’t forget your helmet.
Jersey reveal will be coming in January, stay tuned to the Wolverines social Media’s.
