Our History

Norm Stewart, former head coach of the University of Missouri’s men’s basketball program, cancer survivor, and member of the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC), provided the vision and inspiration for the Coaches vs. Cancer concept. He challenged fans to pledge a dollar amount for every 3-point shot made by his team during the season. The concept evolved and soon the Coaches vs. Cancer program became a nationwide collaboration between the American Cancer Society and the NABC.


We’re pleased to partner with the following corporations who are helping to make a difference in the fight against cancer.
