The SRJC basketball program will go on the offensive in the war on cancer by hosting a special event called “Coaches versus Cancer” at Haehl Pavilion on Jan. 31, with all net proceeds going to the American Cancer Society.

“We want to create some awareness and try to honor people who have gone through this horrible disease,” women’s basketball head coach Lacey Campbell said.

The Bear Cubs will face rival Sierra College in a crucial conference battle, with the women’s team tipping off at 5:30 p.m. and the men’s team at 7:30 p.m.. At halftime during the women’s game, a special ceremony the basketball program will hold to recognize all cancer survivors, victims and families in attendance.

Organizers will distribute t-shirts and other prizes and provide literature on cancer from the American Cancer Society. All proceeds from the admission, commemorative t-shirt and raffle sales will go to fight cancer.

General admission is $6, students with I.D. $4, seniors and children $2 and A.S. members have free admission.
