 RE/MAX is proud to partner with the Western Hockey League to present “WHL Suits Up with Don Cherry to Promote Organ Donation – Presented by RE/MAX.” On March 3rd, the Medicine Hat Tigers will play the Red Deer Rebels in a special theme game night, complete with a variety of special promotions for fans in attendance.

The first 1,000 fans in attendance will receive a special-edition Don Cherry bobblehead, while other fans will receive a limited-edition Don Cherry trading card, courtesy of Upper Deck. Fans can also take a selfie with a life-size stand-up cut out of Don Cherry.

The March 3rd theme game is part of a larger RE/MAX of Western Canada partnership, which includes games in 17 Canadian markets throughout the 2017/18 WHL season. Western Canada RE/MAX agents are the official agents of the WHL.

“RE/MAX of Western Canada is excited to partner with Don Cherry and the WHL to help promote the importance of organ donation. These themed games will be fun for fans, and will help generate support for the Kidney Foundation of Canada,” says Elton Ash, Regional Executive Vice President, RE/MAX of Western Canada.

On the ice, the Medicine Hat Tigers will sport their own unique and specially-designed Don Cherry-themed jersey. Fans will have the opportunity to bid on the limited-edition jerseys, with 100 per cent of the proceeds going to local chapters of the Kidney Foundation. In addition to game-worn uniforms, fans will have the chance to bid on one Don Cherry-autographed jersey worn by Medicine Hat Tiger players.

The Kidney Foundation is a cause close to the Cherry family. Don’s son, Tim, received a kidney transplant from his sister Cindy. With close to 4,500 Canadians awaiting organ donation today – 76 per cent whom require a kidney – the Cherry family, RE/MAX and the WHL have come together to create the WHL Suits Up with Don Cherry to Promote Organ Donation – Presented by RE/MAX awareness campaign in support of the Kidney Foundation.
