WINNIPEG, MB., August 9, 2019 – The Winnipeg Blue Bombers announce the first-ever Intercept Cancer game presented by Lawson’s Sales August 15th at IG Field.

During the game, fans will be asked to participate in a stadium-wide moment of silence honouring those have courageously fought cancer, followed by a cheer to support those who are currently battling cancer.

Blue Bombers wives and partners along with volunteers from CancerCare Manitoba Foundation will be selling limited-edition autographed white cowbells at each gate. Four cowbells will be left un-autographed – the lucky fans who purchase these special blank cowbells will be invited down for a meet and greet with players post-game.

Additionally, local band The Treble will be performing at halftime and August 15thand fans are encouraged to wear pink.

The Walby Burger includes six burger patties, six chicken tenders, six hotdogs, six pieces of bacon, cheese, pickles, lettuce, fries, onions, tomatoes, and a secret special sauce. Limited quantities will be available.
