COACHES VS. CANCER
Since 2013, bd Global and MGM Resorts International have supported Coaches vs. Cancer by hosting annual games supporting the fight against cancer. Previous events have featured New Mexico-Marquette & Oklahoma State-Colorado in 2013, Oklahoma-Washington & UNLV-Utah in 2014, UNLV-Oregon in 2015 and UNLV-Duke in 2016. This year’s UNLV-Illinois game will be the fifth annual event benefiting Coaches vs. Cancer and a portion of every ticket sold will be donated to the cause.
The Coaches vs. Cancer program empowers coaches, their teams, and communities to join the fight against cancer by participating in awareness efforts, advocacy programs, and fundraising activities. Guided by the Coaches vs. Cancer Council, participating coaches help people with cancer today and to find cures to end the disease tomorrow, and have raised more than $100 million to help the American Cancer Society’s mission.
