This year it's easier than ever to support the NCAA Men's Division 1 basketball coaches who are trying to raise money for Coaches vs. Cancer in the annual INFINITI Coaches Charity Challenge. There is no log-in required, and you can vote on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, as well as on the INFINITI Challenge web page.
The coaches who have chosen Coaches vs. Cancer as their charity are:
- Avery Johnson: Alabama
- Scott Drew: Baylor
- Bryce Drew: Vanderbilt
- Fran McCaffrey: Iowa
- Lon Kruger: Oklahoma
- Mike Brey: Notre Dame
- Bruce Weber: Kansas State
Round 1 of four rounds of voting is now underway! Please visit www.infinititimeout.com EVERY DAY to vote for one of the coaches above. And, please encourage your family, friends, and volunteers to do the same! One good way to do that is through Facebook - just remember to include the above URL.
In addition, you can vote on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, and each counts as separate votes, so you can vote for a coach three times PER DAY on social media. You must use these two hashtags in your posts: #Timeout2vote + #CoachFirstName_LastName. Here is a sample:
A timeout can change a game. Now it can change a life. Take a #Timeout2Vote for #CoachFirstNameLastName. Vote now at INFINITITIMEOUT.COM
Round 1 voting ends on Jan. 21. The dates of the next rounds are:
- Round 2: Jan. 22 – Feb. 11
- Round 3: Feb. 12 – Feb. 25
- Final Round: Feb. 26 – March 10
Over four rounds of voting, fans will whittle the field of 48 coaches down to a final four. The coach with the most votes after four rounds wins $100,000 for their charity. Each charity will receive money for every round their representative coach is voted through, with the minimum amount they receive increasing round by round. In total, INFINITI will donate a total of $349,000 to the coaches' charities.
Another way to give us a boost!
For every photo you post on Instagram of yourself forming the time out hand pose (as pictured in the smaller image) will count as a vote for your coach. Please follow these steps:
- Take a picture of yourself forming the time out hand pose. Use a black and white filter.
- Use the hashtag #Timeout2Vote in your caption.
- Don't forget to mention the coach you want your vote to count for: #CoachFirstName_LastName.
