This season, the Gamecock Men’s Basketball team will be assisting The American Cancer Society in the fight against cancer by shooting 3-pointers.
After a successful first year effort in 2017, Coaches vs. Cancer is a concept introduced by a University of Missouri basketball coach who is also a cancer survivor. Fans can pledge a dollar for every 3-point shot a team takes during the season at http://www.pledgeit.org/cvc18-south-carolina.
High schools have even joined in the competition in January and colleges during February. Stephanie Reely, American Cancer Society staff partner said that The Colleges Against Cancer student organization was on hand at the Colonial Life Arena during last Saturday’s game to assist fans in donating. “You don’t have to be there to get in on the action, fans can sign up throughout the month of February to participate.”, said Reely.
The link above also shows a special message from Coach Frank Martin. With your support that impact can be felt nationwide. Through fundraising and education initiatives, the Coaches vs. Cancer program has supported the American Cancer Society in improving and saving lives from cancer in the US and worldwide.
