Basketball players raising funds by running Tow Hill

  • Nov. 28, 2014 10:00 a.m.

The Skidegate Junior Saints and the Old Massett Juniors will be running up and down Tow Hill as many times as they can at noon this Sat., raising money for their upcoming basketball season.”It’s a bit of a friendly competition,” said Old Massett coach Cal Westbrook, as the teams will be trying to out-run one another. “If people want to come cheer the boys on, they’re more than welcome.”The weekend is an opportunity for the teams to come together off the court, he said, shrinking the north-south divide. They’ll be staying at the Hiellen Cabins and the running will be a warm up for some surfing and paddleboarding if weather permits.Those who wish to donate can contact Mr. Westbrook at George M. Dawson Secondary School (626-3226) or Skidegate coach Dave Wahl at Queen Charlotte Secondary (559-8822). Or, they can support a player canvassing in the community.
