The ECS Senior Girls' Basketball team is holding their 'Shoot For A Cure' Pink Tournament this weekend beginning Friday at 3 pm to help raise funds for a member of the community with cancer. The ECS Elecs will be hitting the court in their first game of the tournament Friday evening against Moose Jaw Central at 6 pm. 

"This year's theme is Stomp Out Cancer, and this year the recipient of the funds is William Sinclair," explained Kerri Lawson, a teacher at the Estevan Comprehensive High Scool. "He was diagnosed with oesophagal cancer in 2015, he had several chemotherapy and radiation treatments in Regina and then he had to have his entire oesophagus removed. In 2018, the cancer unfortunately returned and had spread to his colon. So, he went through a more aggressive treatment of chemo for about 4 months, but it didn't work. Then on December 11th of 2018, they removed a large section of his colon. It's a long recovery process because he is still recovering from cancer he went through in 2015, so he is our recipient this year."

William Sinclair's daughter is Nicole Rogalski, a teacher and coach at ECS and they decided he would be a good recipiant as Nicole has taught most of the girls on the team. William has great ties to not only the school but also to the community.

"There is an admission fee of $3 per day or $5 for a weekend pass then once you get past the door there is a raffle table, a quilt raffle, there's a game you can play and enter to win a Hillberg and Berk earring set or a Stella and Dot jewellery package. So there's a lot to do once you get in the doors rather than watch basketball. We'd love to see as much community support as possible so that we can raise as much money as we can so we can help William and his family during this time.
