Our Efforts ...
The St. Louis Coaches vs. Cancer initiative has raised much needed funds for the fight against cancer. Funds are raised throughout the year in a multitude of sports including basketball, football, volleyball, and others. Funds are raised with the efforts of dedicated high school, college, and community groups, through the efforts of the Paint it Pink games, the Shootout, Strike Out Cancer, and many other fundraising and awareness events. With your help, the coaches hope to reach their ambitious goal of increasing yearly donations by 50%.
