Suits and Sneakers Awareness Weekend – January 27-29, 2012
During the 9th annual Coaches vs. Cancer Suits & Sneakers awareness weekend on January 27-29, nearly 1,000 basketball coaches across the United States will swap their loafers for sneakers in support of the American Cancer Society’s mission to save lives and create a world with less cancer and more birthdays.
Both high school and college basketball coaches will lace up their sneakers to spotlight the fact that cancer remains a major health concern and everyone can take daily steps to reduce their risk of the disease and stay well. For those who do not smoke, eating a healthy diet, adopting a physically active lifestyle, and maintaining a healthy weight are the best ways to improve health and reduce risk. In the United States, more two-thirds of the population are obese and overweight, conditions that contribute to 14-20 percent of all cancer-related deaths.
During the 2012 Suits and Sneakers awareness weekend, join basketball coaches across the country by promoting healthy eating and active living in the fight against cancer.
