GREENVILLE, S.C. (WSPA) – The Greenville Swamp Rabbits hockey team visited Cancer Survivors Park on Wednesday for a tour with park officials.

The Swamp Rabbits will play in a ‘Stick it to Cancer’ game on May 1 at Bon Secours Wellness Arena.

Players wore special black and pink cancer awareness themed jerseys during the tour. The game-worn jerseys will later be auctioned off to benefit the Cancer Survivors Park Alliance.

According to staff, the park provides a unique blend of gathering spaces and natural walkways that provide a place of renewal and healing for anyone who visits.

β€œWe hope everybody comes out and supports the game on May 1, and I hope they win but more importantly to bring awareness to cancer survivors, cancer survivorship and this beautiful space in downtown Greenville that a lot of people don’t know is here to honor and celebrate survivors,” Kay Roper, executive director for the Cancer Survivor’s Park Alliance.

The park, located at 52 Cleveland Street, spans 6.8 acres along the Swamp Rabbit Trail and intends to create a space for celebration, learning, healing and hope.
