Franklin, Mass. - During its men's basketball game against Wheelock on Wednesday, January 24, and in its women's games against Eastern Connecticut (Thursday, January 25) and Elms College (Saturday, January 27), Dean College will be taking part in the Coaches vs. Cancer Suits and Sneakers Week initiative it was announced recently by head coaches Rico Cabral and Grahm Smith.
This nationwide event unites coaches across the country to raise awareness about the American Cancer Society's lifesaving mission, and promote the American Cancer Society as a place for help and support.
Members of the Bulldog coaching staff will wear sneakers with their game attire as a visible reminder about the importance of nutrition and physical activity in reducing cancer risk.
Anyone attending the game is being asked to wear sneakers and a large group photo will be taken after the game to promote the program's involvement in the endeavor.
