Tigerettes Win 2 in Coaches vs. Cancer Classic at Livingston Academy PDF Print E-mail
Wednesday, December 15, 2010

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.
Coaches vs. Cancer evolved from a concept championed by Norm Stewart, former head coach of the University of Missouri men’s basketball program, cancer survivor, and member of the National Association of Basketball Coaches. He started the program by challenging fans to pledge a dollar amount for every three points made by his team during the season. The American Cancer Society and the NABC adopted that 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 from cancer.
Because cancer has touched so many of our nation’s basketball coaches, Coaches vs. Cancer offers them a unique opportunity to fight the disease.
One dollar from every ticket sale was donated to the American Cancer Society, during the Coaches vs. Cancer Classic at Livingston Academy, held on November 26-27th, in which Coach Jeff Beam’s Macon County High School Tigerettes were happy to participate in.
