Coaches vs. Cancer Suits And Sneakers® Week runs from January 21-27, uniting coaches across the country to raise funds and awareness for our fight against cancer. While coaching games during the week, coaches wear sneakers with their game attire as a visible reminder about the importance of nutrition and physical activity in reducing one’s cancer risk.
