The Blackduck High School football team met at midfield with cancer survivors and fighters prior to the Drakes' 35-0 win over Red Lake on Wednesday. The game served as a platform for breast cancer awareness, as Blackduck raised money for the Edith Sanford Breast Center in Bemidji to help women in the region pay for mammograms.
