She’s organizing a basketball tournament at Georgian College to raise awareness, looking fo teams to take part and sponsors to help cover the costs and raise funds for youth mental wellness. She’s hoping to put 12 teams on the court in two age groupings – she teaches basketball to 12 and 13 year olds. The tournament will take place March 12.
