Three Vancouver Island University volleyball players are targeting their toughest opponent yet.
Ashley Van Acken, Megan Rosenlund and Paige Wiebe want to try to raise $10,000 for the B.C. Cancer Foundation.
The cause is dear to Van Acken, whose mother is a cancer survivor.
“People provided funds for research to be done and it saved my mom’s life, so I’ve always had it in me that once in my life I need to shave my head for cancer,” she said.
The three women have signed up for the Underwear Affair 10-kilometre run. Each participating team is asked to raise at least $300, but the Mariners v-ball players have set the bar a little higher.
To help draw support, they have pledged to shave their heads on June 5, a month before the run.
