Const. Victor Leroux, of the Greater Sudbury Police Service, holds the trophy for the annual Police vs. Fire charity hockey game — a game the police team has won for the past three years running. Fire Prevention Officer Mitch Thériault, of the Greater Sudbury Fire Service, says this is the year the fire team is finally going to win the bragging rights.

But win or lose, the fourth edition of the game is really about the kids who will benefit from the funds raised. In the past years, the charity game has raised at least $5,000 for various charities in the community. This year, funds will be put toward the purchase of road hockey equipment — sets that will include 10 sticks, two nets and two sets of goalie equipment — which will be distributed to underprivileged youth in the area.

The game is set to take place March 22 at the Gerry McCrory Countryside Sports Complex, 7-10 p.m. Tickets are $5 and are available at the door or by phoning Leroux at 705-675-9171 ext. 2319 or Thériault at 705-671-2489 ext. 3742.
