Don Cherry's name removed from organ donation fundraiser

Don Cherry's name has been removed from the Western Hockey League's (WHL) organ donation event series designed to support the Kidney Foundation of Canada.

The WHL first started the WHL Suits Up with Don Cherry to Promote Organ Donation event in 2017 and is continuing the event as a Cherry-less rebrand. The renamed WHL Suits Up to Promote Organ Donation begins on January 17 in Edmonton, with the only participation from Cherry appearing in the form of two autographed jerseys and some bobbleheads.

Don Cherry's son Tim previously received a kidney transplant as a young man from his sister Cindy.

Late last year, Don Cherry was removed from his position on Hockey Night in Canada's Coach's Corner segment for his comments about the poppy and Remembrance Day.
