Tailing the Komets

A worthy cause

I don't know how many of you got to read the story I did about a month ago about Kevin St. Pierre and his relationship with Zach and Ethan Shlater. Ethan has diabetes, which has always been a big topic for Kevin and his charitable work.

At the time, Kevin talked about creating T-shirts which could be sold to help raise money for the Juvenile Diabetes Foundation. The T-shirts are now on sale at the Komets games, at Komet Kuarters or by calling the Komets office at 260-483-0011.

St. Pierre said a couple of other teams in the UHL have expressed interest in selling the shirts.

``It's going to take some time because a lot of people don't know about the T-shirts,'' he said. ``After the last game last week, I signed a bunch, and that's awesome. This guy from South Carolina who sent me a letter said his kid has had over 7,000 shots already. That's just unbelievable. Kids shouldn't have to go through that. Nobody should have to go through that.''

St. Pierre is still planning on soliciting donations at Komets games, but that will be sometime after Christmas. Fans will be able to donate per save, per win or several other categories for as many games as they'd like.
