Coaches for Cancer

Providence boys’ varsity team will tonight hold its annual Coaches versus Cancer game, which this year is against rival New Albany.

There will be t-shirt sales ($10) and donations, as well as a raffle and prizes. Proceeds will go to a local cancer organization.

 

The idea for the event came about a few years ago as a response to the unusually large number of players’ family members being affected by cancer.

The Pioneers will also pay tribute at the game to survivors and those who’ve lost the battle to the disease.

 

The junior varsity matchup kicks off at 6 p.m, with varsity following with an approximate 7.30 p.m. start. Expect to see a lot of pink both on and off the field.
