Green Men Announce Farewell Tour Dates-Raise Funds, Awareness for Kidney Cancer Research

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Dec. 30, 2014) -

Editors Note: There is a photo associated with this press release.

Look out British Columbia - the Green Men are coming to an arena near you!

Renowned for tormenting opposing players at Vancouver Canucks' home games, Sully (Ryan Sullivan) and Force (Adam Forsythe) will be donning green for an upcoming farewell tour beginning Saturday, January 10 in Victoria and ending Friday, March 13 in Vancouver.

"We're taking our shtick to hockey arenas around the province and it's going to be a blast!" says Forsythe, the taller of the two men in green. "We'll be raising roofs and raising funds for kidney cancer research at the Canadian Cancer Society".

The duo will be seeking donations to the charity during photo and autograph sessions being held throughout the tour. It's a deeply personal matter for Sullivan.

"The reason that we're doing kidney cancer is because that's what I lost my grandfather to almost a decade ago", he says.

The two friends started wearing the now iconic green spandex suits during the 2009-2010 season, establishing a loyal fan base through regular appearances on TV sports highlight reels and on social media channels. They were inducted into the ESPN Hall of Fans in 2012.

"After five years of pulling outrageous stunts in those stretchy outfits, we decided it was finally time to send 'em to the cleaners," says Sullivan. "B.C. hockey fans built this. It's only fitting we get to end it together!"

The Green Men Farewell Tour includes stops at ten arenas and is being presented by Pacific Coastal Airlines, a Richmond B.C. based company that provides regular scheduled service to more than sixty-five destinations in B.C.
