Annual Coaches Vs. Cancer 5K Set For April 23

The Penn State chapter of Coaches vs. Cancer will host its 15th annual 5K run/walk on April 23. It all begins at Medlar Field’s Lubrano Park at 10 a.m.

Registration is now open for those interested in participating. The $15 fee includes a t-shirt. Those who want to help in the fight against cancer but can’t make it on Saturday can make a donation here.

The Coaches vs. Cancer program is a nationwide partnership between the American Cancer Society and the National Association of Basketball Coaches. Here at Penn State, Coaches vs. Cancer (CvC) and Pat Chambers hold a 5K every year to raise funds and awareness for the American Cancer Society.

Another CvC-Penn State tradition is the annual Golf Tournament, which plenty of Penn State coaches and administrators usually attend. This year, the tournament takes place on Thursday, June 2 and Friday, June 3 at the Blue and White Golf Courses.

RIght now, Penn State’s chapter of CvC is the fourth-largest in the country. This year, the cumulative total raised is expected to surpass the $2.5 million mark. If you’ve been stuck inside working on those end-of-the-semester assignments, consider coming out for a run on Saturday morning. After all, the fight against cancer never rests.
