Saturday, Jan. 21 Games Feature “Coaches vs Cancer”

When Saint George’s hosts Colfax in ESAC Gym on Saturday, Jan. 21, it will be for more than just basketball games at 4:30 and 6:00pm. That evening is a Coaches vs Cancer event to raise funds for cancer research and patient services.

“I have coached players afflicted by this insidious disease and have lost loved ones to cancer,” says coach Mark Rickard, who organized the event. “My hope is the time and energy put into this event will continue the positive steps our community has made toward the eradication of cancers in all forms.”
