News Story

It's Suits And Sneakers week - January 25-31

Please help promote this on social media, especially if your hometown team is participating! 

The annual Coaches vs. Cancer Suits And Sneakers Week is here!

The week unites basketball coaches across the country to raise funds and awareness about the fight against cancer and promotes the American Cancer Society as a source of inspiration and hope for those facing cancer.  

While coaching games during the week, coaches wear sneakers with their game attire as a visible reminder of their support of ACS. This year, we’re adding an even more visible element to Suits And Sneakers Week for Division I head coaches: Coaches vs. Cancer-branded face masks that head and assistant coaches are encouraged to wear.  

In addition to Suits And Sneakers Week, we have a Suits And Sneakers fundraising platform that any school (college, high school, and youth league) or volunteer can use to create a customizable fundraising page.

Teams and individuals who choose to participate in this fundraising side of Suits And Sneakers can fundraise anytime, and are not limited to just Suits And Sneakers Week. This season, our Suits And Sneakers fundraiser will support childhood cancer research, services, and awareness.

You can follow the action on the national leaderboard at SuitsAndSneakers.org. The top fundraising college and high school teams in the nation will be recognized as Suits And Sneakers National Champions on March 31.

Volunteers can also use these Suits And Sneakers fundraising pages to support existing ACS events. To find out how, please click here.
