Welcome to Rush Nation, Cody Fajardo
There's no one tougher than a Saskatchewan Farmer. Next Saturday, January 18, 2020, the Saskatchewan Rush will pay tribute to the farming community across the province as part of Prairie Pride Night, presented by Finning.
The Rush will host the Colorado Mammoth in a western division showdown featuring special guests from the Saskatchewan Roughriders... QB, Cody Fajardo and Rider Legend, George Reed, who will be participating in the ceremonial face-off to the start of the game. Cody Fajardo will be participating in a Football Challenge at halftime giving a few lucky fans the chance to catch a pass. Be in the stands for your chance to WIN!
Rush players will wear a limited edition plaid jersey, proudly showcasing a wheat emblem and the Saskatchewan flag. These game-worn jerseys will auctioned off on the Official Rush Facebook page from Monday, January 13th at 9:00am until Sunday, January 19th at 12:00pm CST, with proceeds benefitting Farm In The Dell.
Spearheaded by Cherry Insurance, we are proud to partner with Farm In The Dell as the featured charity of the game. They are a non-profit organization that supports individuals with intellectual disabilities in their home and work in rural Saskatchewan.
"Farm in the Dell provides great opportunities for our residents to live on a farm and experience the great Saskatchewan Rural lifestyle! We are beyond thrilled to have the RUSH support the farm in this way and are glad to partner with them and Cherry Insurance. We are so appreciative of the support given by the Rush for this experience and opportunity and appreciate all they do and continue to do for the Saskatchewan community!" said Lynette and Krista, from Farm In The Dell.
Limited edition farming t-shirts will also be available for $20, with $5 going back to Farm In The Dell.
Tickets are still available for Prairie Pride Night. Doors open at 6PM and ball-drop is slated for 7:30PM.
