NCCC coaching staff will do away with their loafers for the night of January 31st in favor of sneakers as part of the annual Coaches vs. Cancer Suits and Sneakers Awareness Campaign.
In conjunction with the Suits and Sneakers game, Neosho Athletics and NCCC are teaming up for “Wear Your Sneakers To Work Day”. With just a minimum donation of $5, employees can ditch their loafers or heels and wear sneakers to work on Wednesday, January 28th.
Suits and Sneakers is a way for coaches and their staff to raise awareness about the fight against cancer. By wearing sneakers with their suits, it also helps highlight the importance of physical activity and proper nutrition as a way to reduce the risk of the disease
Local businesses are encouraged to join in on the cause too! For more information, or how to make a donation, contact Mike Saddler by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 620-432-0397.
