The basketball team in Gods Lake Narrows First Nation School. The girls are hoping to raise funds to head to a national basketball tournament in Toronto, in honour of one of their teammates who took her own life last month.

The team at God’s Lake Narrows First Nation School said the funds will go towards shoes, uniforms and airline tickets to take part in the Gladiators Cup Tournament in Toronto next April. The tournament is an annual magnet for basketball players from across Canada.

The campaign will also honour the memory of one of their teammates, Harmony Okemow, 14, who took her life Nov. 20.
