American Cancer Society Coaches vs. Cancer initiative unites coaches
nationwide with the Society's mission to save lives from cancer. Thanks to the incredible support from the University at Albany and Siena College, the Capital Region comes together as one team to fight a formidable foe - cancer.
Since its inception, the Coaches vs. Cancer Basket Ball has raised over $1,000,000 to fund cancer research and patient services. Previous event
honorees have included some of basketball's premier coaches including George Karl, Jim Boeheim, Steve Lavin, Gary Williams and Jamie Dixon.
Approximately 1.6 million new cancer cases are expected to be diagnosed in the United States in 2014, with more than 108,000 new cases in New York alone. Funds raised at the CvC Basket Ball helps save lives by helping people stay well through prevention and early detection, by helping people get well when facing a cancer diagnosis, by finding cures through research and by
rallying communities to fight back.
WHEN IT COMES TO FIGHTING CANCER,
WE’RE ON THE SAME TEAM.
