Is Your Organization Ready to Take the Suits And Sneakers™ Challenge?

Suits and Sneakers Challenge ImageCoaches vs. Cancer, a nationwide collaboration between the American Cancer Society and the National Association of Basketball Coaches, is once again hosting Suits And Sneakers Awareness Weekend on January 24-26, 2014. This weekend unites coaches across the country by encouraging them to wear sneakers with their game attire while coaching games, to raise awareness about the fight against cancer and promote the American Cancer Society.

Suits And Sneakers activities aren’t just for coaches and their staff! Corporations are encouraged to join their favorite basketball teams and coaches in the fight against cancer through the Suits And Sneakers Challenge. Through this challenge, companies host a Wear Your Sneakers to Work Day, and encourage employee participants to make a minimum donation of $5 to the American Cancer Society.

The Suits And Sneakers Challenge is held the Monday following Suits And Sneakers Awareness Weekend, Monday, January 27, 2014, or the first day of the NCAA March Madness Basketball Tournament, March 18, 2014. If corporations are unable to participate on either date, the Society encourages them to schedule their Wear Your Sneakers to Work Day for any day between January and April 2014 that works best for them and their company.
