WESTBROOK, Minnesota (STPNS) --     Westbrook  —  The Coaches vs. Cancer program is a nationwide  collaboration between the American Cancer Society and the National Association of Basketball Coaches. It empowers basketball coaches, their teams,  and local communities to make a difference in the fight against cancer. The program, through community leadership and personal experiences, is a nationwide program to increase cancer awareness and advocacy programs.

    Locally the Charger boys basketball team has put together a fund raising event which will be presented when the Chargers host the Ellsworth Panthers on Saturday January 26 in the WWG gymnasium.



    High lighting the night will be a silent auction with several autographed items from professional athletes and much more. In addition to that there will be a couple dozen  more items to be raffled off including t-shirts, Gopher tickets, and Sioux Falls Storm tickets.

    There will also be a wall of hope to remember those people who have had and are currently battling cancer.

    A hoola hoop contest will be held during the half time break with prizes furnished by Bubai Foods. Integrity Bank of Walnut Grove will donate $1.00 for every point the Chargers score.

    Charger head coach Derrick Jenniges said there are dozens of Pink  Out t-shirts on  sale the  week before the event.  He said “let’s pack the gym with pink! The event is sure to be  a lot of fun and we  hope everyone will  come out to support the Chargers and join in the fight against cancer!”
