Men's basketball staff to join cancer awareness effort Saturday
Athletics - posted on 1/29/2010
Coaches vs. Cancer Suits and Sneakers awareness weekend, a collaborative initiative of the National Association of Basketball Coaches and the American Cancer Society, is slated for the weekend of Jan. 29-31, 2010.
Participating NABC-member college men's basketball coaches, including coach Aaron Aanonsen and the Lakeland staff, will wear sneakers instead of dress shoes with their usual game attire during this Saturday's game at Wisconsin Lutheran to demonstrate their support for the American Cancer Society's fight to save lives from cancer. To show your support of Coach Aanonsen's effort in the fight against cancer, we invite you to wear your sneakers to the game too.
Thanks to the dedicated efforts of college and high school coaches across the country, Coaches vs. Cancer has been helping the American Cancer Society save lives since 1993 by helping people stay well by educating and empowering people to avoid cancer or find it early; helping people get well with free programs and services when they're facing cancer; by finding cures by conducting and investing in research that yields groundbreaking discoveries into cancer's causes and cures; and by fighting back by helping pass laws that fight cancer and keep our communities healthy.
