Coach King was contacted by Brian Casalinova of the American Cancer Society. They sent us posters, pledge cards, and rubber bands with Coaches vs. Cancer written on them. We also did a tee shirt as part of the fundraising effort and donated part of the proceeds to the American Cancer Society.
We ran this event across both boys and basketball so we had 35-40 student-athletes participating.
The athletes helped for roughly 3-4 hours. They went around asking for donations, tee-shirt sales and worked the games to show support
They helped by raising funds and spreading the message in fighting all types of cancers
This is our first year running the CVC this way – we have run this event in previous years and the goal is every year to build and make the experience a great one. Similar to what we’ve run in the past just organized a little better with having direct contact with the American Cancer Society
