Students support KGH through dodgeball

Students are fundraising for a perinatal unit through a dodgeball tournament

They’ll duck, they’ll dodge, and they’ll take one for the team – high school students from Central Okanagan schools are ready for the final showdown of the District Dodgeball Tournament.

Organized by the district student council, the tournament raises money for the Kelowna General Hospital Foundation’s Giving Giggles campaign, which supports new state of the art equipment for the KGH perinatal unit.

“We’re proud of the district student council (and) all the students who organize and participate in this tournament,” said superintendent Kevin Kaardal. “They’re leading by example, showing us all what it means to be a contributor, and having fun while they’re at it.”

The tournament finals take place at the Kelowna Secondary gym Thursday, May 4, from 6 to 7 p.m. The cost is $3 at the door to support the cause.
