Metro Vancouver.....Last week the KSA and KPU Athletics & Recreation wrapped up this year's Movember fundraising campaign in support of prostate cancer research. Numerous KPU staff and students grew varying styles of moustaches throughout the month of November to raise funds and awareness for the cause, which totalled $1,200 in donations. The month was capped off by KPU's annual Movember Dodgeball tournament on November 28th in the Eagles Nest on the Surrey Campus and saw 10 teams go head-to-head for five hours of intense competition.
Active KSA and KPU Recreation ran the tournament with the expertise and assistance of the Surrey Dodgeball League, the wildly successful tournament was structured with round robin play to set the stage for a double elimination bracket.
