2018 marks the 25th anniversary of Coaches vs. Cancer nationwide.

The program, a collaboration between the American Cancer Society and the National Association of Basketball Coaches, unites coaches and fans to defeat cancer through fundraising and education.

On September 27, Kansas City-area supporters gathered at the Kansas City Convention Center’s Bartle Hall for the Coaches vs. Cancer Season TipOff Event, an evening that featured auctions, cocktails, gourmet food and a powerful conversation with the area’s top basketball coaches, including KU’s Bill Self and K-State’s Bruce Weber.
