Police versus fire in Battle of the Badges

The Hope RCMP and fire detachments face each other on ice Feb. 18 in the fifth annual Battle of the Badges hockey game.

The fifth annual Battle of the Badges hockey game is set to take place Feb. 18 in Hope.

The game will be played between the Hope Fire Department and the Hope RCMP, with all proceeds from the game going to Cops For Cancer.

“This is such a fun event to watch and for a great cause,”said Cst. Tracy Wolbeck. “Police and fire often cross paths in a routine day and a real bond is built among emergency service workers. It’s fun to watch that dynamic play out during three periods of good hockey, and it’s really a nice way to spend a winter afternoon.”

The funds raised will specifically going to a Hope RCMP member who is participating in the Tour de Valley bike ride in September. All members of this crew have a steep fundraising requirement they have to fulfill before becoming part of the team.

The hockey game will be held at the Hope arena at 2:30 p.m. and tickets can be purchased at the Hope RCMP detachment.

Tickets for $10 for adults and $5 for students.

There is a family rate of $20 for two adults and two kids, with  children two years and under admitted free.
