YANTIS – On Tuesday, the Yantis basketball program will be hosting Fruitvale, but the outcome of the game will be about much more than how the scoreboard reads. The proceeds of game and special fundraisers from the days prior to the game will be donated to the American Cancer Society and to local cancer patient Trent Floyd.
At Yantis the love for basketball will be transformed into a lifesaving cause by getting involved with Coaches vs. Cancer event. The event, deemed the “Coaches versus Cancer” game, spans the US as basketball coaches at all levels designate a game on their schedule for the cause. The joint effort by the American Cancer Society and the National Association of Basketball Coaches empowers basketball coaches, their teams and communities to help win the fight against cancer.
