Several years ago Vito Frijia & the London Lightning partnered with Megan Walker & the London Abused Women's Ctre to help shine the light on Women's Abuse.
At this event everyone is encouraged to wear purple. You will see purple dresses, purple shirts, purple ties & even purple hair. Most noticeably is the purple uniforms on the court.
The team wears purple that game to signify their support of this amazing cause. A video montage is played before the game & after the game the uniforms are sold at auction with the thousands of dollars raised being given to the Ctre.
This season joining London are PEI, Windsor, Niagara & Cape Breton. Each event was powerful in its own rite.
Next year look for ALL OF OUR TEAMS to join these teams in making all of us aware of what takes place behind close doors & why none of us should allow such terrible behavior towards other people to continue.
Now we do this once per year but Megan does this on the daily. She lives this passion & I for one am impressed with her passion. If you are on Twitter I encourage you to follow her @LDNAbusedWomenCtre as she shines the light 365 days per year. A powerful & positive use of social media!!!
