Coaches vs. Cancer

Wednesday, March 21, 2012

On behalf of the Okoboji High School Athletic Department, I would just like to say "thank you" to everyone that participated in our recent Coaches v. Cancer event during our JV and Varsity basketball games against Central Lyon on Friday, Jan. 27. Thank you so much to the people that bought our white "BEAT CANCER" T-shirts as well as those that attended the tailgate and games that night.

Because of your support of this cause, the Okoboji High School Athletic Department is very proud to be able to donate proceeds of this event in the amount of $1,378.30 to the American Cancer Society.

Combined with our breast cancer awareness event during the volleyball season this past fall, the Okoboji High School Athletic Department is very proud to have raised over $3,300 for the American Cancer Society this year.

A special thank you to all our sponsors because without their help, we would not have been able to do this event.

Sincerely,

Ryan Paulsen

Director of Athletics
