Coaches vs. Cancer: Suits And Sneakers

It’s the weekend when some well-dressed—and some not so well-dressed—college basketball coaches wear sneakers to show their support for the American Cancer Society.

The seventh annual Coaches vs. Cancer Suits and Sneakers Awareness Weekend is an initiative of the American Cancer Society and the National Association of Basketball Coaches that has coaches, their teams and local communities trying to make a difference in the fight against cancer.

By wearing sneakers with their suits, college and high school basketball coaches across the country will spotlight the fact that while cancer remains a major health concern, everyone can take steps to reduce their risk of the disease.

Coaches vs. Cancer participants have raised more than $60 million since 1993 to help the American Cancer Society fund groundbreaking cancer research, provide up-to-date cancer information and education, advocate for public health policies that benefit communities, and deliver services that improve the quality of life for patients and their families.
