Third Annual Coaches vs. Cancer Benefit Basketball Game

Because nearly everyone has been touched by cancer in some way South Kent School is once again joining with the long established “Coaches vs. Cancer” initiative to take part in making a difference. The School will be hosting its third annual Coaches vs. Cancer event at a prep basketball game to support the American Cancer Society’s lifesaving work in research, education, advocacy and patient services. We hope you will join us in the fight against cancer.

The game will be held on Wednesday, January 27, 2015 at 4:00 PM vs. Northfield Mt. Herman in conjunction with the National Association of Basketball Coaches' "Suits and Sneakers" Awareness week. We will be having a "Suits and Sneakers" day for all faculty and staff on Friday, January 29th that will let people don fun sneakers with their suits for just a small $2 donation.  You can partner with us in the fight against cancer by visiting the South Kent donation page and giving here today.

Today, there is more hope than ever for people facing cancer. We hope you will support our team and make a donation today!

About Coaches vs. Cancer
The American Cancer Society and the NABC adopted the concept in 1993 and transformed it into a nation-wide effort to unite coaches across the country in the common mission to provide help and hope to all people facing cancer. Today, high school and Division I, II, and III college coaches across the country are involved in the program. Coaches vs. Cancer has raised more than $50 million since its inception to support the American Cancer Society's work to save lives. In 1998, the Coaches vs. Cancer Council was formed a distinguished group of NABC member basketball coaches, American Cancer Society volunteers, and business leaders from across the country to explore new and innovative ways to raise funds, recruit prominent coaches, enhance the program, and help save lives from cancer.
