NorKam secondary is pitching in to help in the fight against cancer.

The culmination of Breast Cancer Awareness Week is slated for Friday, when girls from the school’s rugby and volleyball teams will run drills and scrimmages from 1:45 p.m. to 4 p.m. during the Pass for the Cure event.

Students, including members of the Bella Saints (Adrian Parker’s hairdressing students), have been collecting donations for the BC Cancer Foundation and wearing pink.

Those wishing to contribute on Friday can go to the rugby field to drop off donations.

Kamloops Last Week was invited to NorKam earlier this week to be put through the paces by the rugby and volleyball girls.

The segment begins at about the 28-minute mark of Episode 20, which is posted above.

Student-athlete interviewees include Myranda MacKenzie, Aleyna Gamble, Courtney Jones, Samanah Shanko, Brooke Jeffries and Jaime Dickson.

Rugby coach Sue Kabotoff and volleyball coach/event organizer Wai Ma.
