FIGHTS FOR A CURE! Foligno's Flock, THE source for all things Nick Foligno is offering fans a way to help raise funds for the JFF by pledging every time a Blue Jackets player gets in a scuffle during the 2014/2015 season.
While it was a nippy -20 Celsius Monday afternoon, the 5th Ali and Nico's Hot Chocolate Stand and Road Hockey Charity Event in Lively still scored a net full of goals in the fight against cancer.
Ali and Nico Nadeau, who live on Chinaberry Drive, had some 60 people come out to play road hockey, enjoy some hot chocolate donated by the Lively Tim Hortons, and donate to the Janis Foligno Foundation.
By the end of the afternoon, about 50 people had showed up to play some road hockey and support the fundraiser.
"Just over $600 was raised," said mom Katrina late Monday afternoon. "Some other donations are coming in, so that figure is going to grow."
The Foligno family name is well known in Sudbury, but not only because of the on ice performances of Mike, Nick and Marcus. The late Janis Foligno was known for giving back to the community where she was born and raised, and her family has continued that tradition in her name with the Janis Foligno Foundation, which helps in the fight against breast cancer.
