Paint the rink pink

Hockey is more than just a game to the many players, families, and communities that are brought together by the sport. Nine years ago, owner of the Austin Bruins started a tradition that has spread beyond the boards to the entire town of Austin, Minnesota. Growing from a single game with a pink sheet of ice, the town has embraced the role they play in funding cancer research. With the world renowned Hormel Institute in their backyard, the now month long event has raised over 1.5 million dollars. Not bad for a town of under 30,000 people.
