"We are supporting the Coaches vs. Cancer program to raise money for cancer research," volunteer event organizer David Bonnette said. "Cancer takes many lives, so we would like to help."

"Every dollar raised at the Coaches vs. Cancer games will help move us closer to the discoveries which prevent, treat, and cure cancer," said Brian Casalinova, American Cancer Society community manager, Special Events.

Coaches vs. Cancer is a nationwide collaboration between the American Cancer Society and the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) that empowers basketball coaches, their teams, and local communities to make a difference in the fight against cancer. The program leverages the personal experiences, community leadership, and professional excellence of basketball coaches nationwide to increase cancer awareness and promote healthy living through year-round awareness efforts, fundraising activities, and advocacy programs.
