Shoot for a Cure and cancer awareness this weekendMonday, February 03, 2014 by: SooToday.com Staff
The events will take place at the George Leach Centre at Algoma University.
Included in the evening are two varsity basketball games against the Toronto Varsity Blues, a silent auction, and Algoma U's Varsity Sports Coordinator cutting and donating her hair.
The women's game starts at 6 p.m. and the men's game starts at 8 p.m.
The annual event aims to raise money and awareness for cancer research.
Many of Algoma University's student-athletes have been affected by cancer in some way and look to show their support for people undergoing treatment.
The annual event is being sponsored by the Algoma University Alumni Council, and is in its fourth year.
Last year, the event honoured current Athletic Director Mark Kontulainen, who was undergoing cancer treatment.
The event raised $2,500 for the Canadian Cancer Society.
