Curlers turned out in the dozens to help raise money for breast cancer this past weekend at the annual Curl for the Cure event.

Sometimes throwing rocks is the solution

Chris Law

Before being taught better by parents, young children sometimes resort to rock throwing in an effort to make problems go away. The schoolyard bully might be the classic example.

At the Winfield Recreation Centre last weekend, the schoolyard bully was “cancer” and curlers of all ages took on the role of young children, hurling rocks at their common enemy.

It was all part of the Curl for the Cure breast cancer fundraiser, an annual event currently in its third year.

This year’s tournament included 56 curlers from Lake Country and surrounding communities. There is a competitive event in the morning followed by fun matches in the afternoon making the fundraiser accessible to any level of curling experience.

The final dollar value raised at Curl for the Cure hasn’t been determined yet but Donna Marshall, one of the organizers, estimates it to be in the area of $12,400.
