Binghamton University Hosts Coaches Vs Cancer Games to Benefit American Cancer Society

From American Cancer Society:

The Binghamton University Men's and Women's basketball programs will host their annual Coaches vs. Cancer games this coming week as they entertain America East rivals. This doubleheader event will take place on Saturday, January 11 at the Events Center. The Women tip-off against Maine at 2 pm and the Men challenge the University of Massachusetts Lowell River Hawks at 4:30 pm. The Coaches vs. Cancer games will raise funds to help support American Cancer efforts to finish the fight against cancer by helping people stay well, get well, by finding cures and by fighting back.

In addition to supporting lifesaving American Cancer Society research, education and advocacy, the money raised by the Coaches vs. Cancer games will be used to support patient service programs in the Southern Tier area. Programs such as Road to Recovery, which provides free round-trip transportation for cancer patients to doctor visits and treatments, and Reach to Recovery, which helps breast cancer patients cope with their diagnosis, treatment, and recovery, will benefit from the games.
Together with millions of supporters, the American Cancer Society saves lives and creates more birthdays by helping people stay well and get well, by finding cures, and by fighting back. For 24-hour cancer information, call toll free 1-800-227-2345 or visit cancer.org.

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.
