ECSU Basketball to Host Winter Homecoming/Coaches vs. Cancer Suits and Sneakers Game

Jan. 24, 2017

ELIZABETH CITY, N.C. – The Elizabeth City State University men’s and women’s basketball teams will host Chowan Uni-versity for its Annual Winter Homecoming Saturday, February 4 at the R. L. Vaughan Center. It will also be ECSU’s Coaches vs. Cancer Suits and Sneakers game.

The Coaches vs. Cancer Suits and Sneakers Week, January 23-29, 2017, is a nationwide event that unites coaches across the country to raise awareness about the American Cancer Society's lifesaving mission, and promote the American Cancer Society as a place for help and support. While coaching games during the week, coaches wear sneakers with their game attire as a visible reminder about the importance of nutrition and physical activity in reducing cancer risk.

During the game, the Student Athlete Advisory Committee will give away cupcakes and raffle off an ECSU paraphernalia gift basket; while the ECSU Cheerleaders walk around with baskets taking up donations for the American Cancer Society and the Coaches vs. Cancer event.
