Fort Richmond Collegiate Student Council is hosting a charity dodgeball tournament for Amnesty International May 11.
Specifically, the funds will help raise awareness to the local issue of missing Aboriginal women.
"They’re called the Stolen Sisters," said Christopher Rampersad, student body president, in a press release. "They’re countless, nameless young women who’ve been raped, beaten, and abducted over the years. But due to lack of awareness, funding, and concern, many of these cases are still open."
The tournament, called "Dodge Injustice" will be hosted in the collegiate’s gym, 99 Killarney Ave., from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. It is opento the entire community of players 16-and-over with a $5 per person registration fee. Groups of six or more are asked to sign up. Individuals who sign up will be placed on a team.
There will also be a canteen, booths selling local crafts, and opportunities to learn more about the issue.
