COUGARS LENDING A HAND IN THE COMMUNITY

Each year, roughly 37,000 people in Canada die as a result of smoking tobacco.

To help put a stop to this staggering statistic, several members from your Victoria Cougars went to Cordova Bay Elementary School this past week to let students there know that chewing or smoking tobacco is unhealthy.

Again, the Victoria Cougars and Island Health have teamed up to promote healthy lifestyles.

“As role models to these kids, it is important that we take the time to educate them and show them how tobacco and sports do not mix,” Cougars associate coach Suneil Karod said.

The visits were split into two days with a total of five classes attended to.

On hand were Kameron Fink, Cody Hodges, Dom Kolbeins, Austin Wilk, Anthony Ciurro, Carlos Grouchy, Taylor Leger, Greg Maggio, and Mitch Moloney.

In addition to the presentations, players and students got to play some indoor soccer as well.
