The UNI Relay for Life organization has reached out to Cedar Falls about hosting a Coaches vs. Cancer fundraiser as a way for more people in the Cedar Valley to get involved in their annual Relay for Life Event.

Coaches vs. Cancer is a nationwide collaboration with the American Cancer Society to help raise awareness and fight against cancer.The game will be held in the gym on this Saturday, Feb. 7 where the Tiger men’s basketball team will face Waverly-Shell Rock.

Increasing awareness in the Cedar Valley is a way to bring the community together in helping those local who are battling with cancer. However this game is quite special for CFHS sophomore Adison Pace, who has dealt with her own battle with cancer.

During halftime Pace will be sharing her story with cancer and the obstacles she has overcome. As a result, this fundraiser means a lot to those who are dealing with or know someone who is dealing with cancer.

At the game, all proceeds will be donated to the UNI Relay for Life organization, then passed onto the American Cancer Society.

Last week, the sophomore leadership group held a bake sale in the Tiger’s Den raising over $450 to donate to this event. T-Shirts have also been sold for the pink out game, which also contributes to the event as well as the silent auction for UNI men’s and women’s basketball jerseys.

Another chance to donate is to the “Fans vs. Cancer Wall,” which is on display by the gym for $1.

By donating to this fundraiser, it empowers our community to help build a better cause by making a difference together. With everyone’s helpful donations, it is helping contribute to saving lives and fighting for everyone against this awful disease.
