Update, Oct. 26: The Nampa Tackles Cancer event raised almost $5,000 for two Nampa families facing cancer.

Students from Columbia, Nampa and Skyview high schools who are enrolled in the marketing and administration pathways program are working to raise money in support of two local families affected by cancer.

The Friday, Oct. 20, Skyview vs. Bishop Kelly football game will feature a number of fundraisers and cancer awareness activities, including a pink-out, bonfire, concessions, games, Dutch Bros, hamburgers and hotdogs. Pink “Nampa Tackles Cancer” T-shirts are on sale for $10.

The game is from 7-10 p.m. Admission is $6 general and free for students with an ASB card or $4 for students without the card.

There also will be an opportunity to get swabbed for Be the Match, a national marrow donor program. This life-saving organization is working with one of the families benefitting from the evening’s events.

In addition, Dawn Callaham, cancer education coordinator for St. Luke’s MSTI Nampa, is providing breast cancer awareness information at a booth.

The Oct. 20 game also is Skyview’s Senior Night.
