Rapid City Rush ask fans to gear up and shake cowbells for first responders
RAPID CITY, S.D. — The Rapid City Rush’s season was cut short due to the coronavirus pandemic and now that COVID-19 is about to hit its peak in most cities and states — the Rapid City Rush wants first responders and those involved in the medical field to know that we appreciate everything they do for us.
So Thursday, April, 23rd at 7:00 p.m. the Rush are asking fans and the Rapid City community to stand outside of their homes in their Rush gear and shake cowbells as loud as they can to show support to those individuals on the front line in the medical field.
Fans are then asked to film themselves doing so and send it in to the Rush’s head office in order for the team to put together a video compilation that shows all the support that Rush Nation has for its first responders.
“We figured what simple way could we help out with this too, and honestly a simple thank you goes a very very long way.” said Mark Binetti, Rapid City Rush Director of Communications , “And we figure why not get Rush hockey on board, why not get our fans, our absolutely rabid, passionate fans involved in thanking these people too.”
If you do not have a cowbell and wish to purchase one you can do so with no contact pick up through the Rapid City Rush’s website.
