In the face of COVID-19, the American Cancer Society is continuing our lifesaving mission in our community and throughout the nation. As the virus spreads without discrimination across the country, cancer patients are placed in the eye of the storm with unique clinical, social and financial disadvantages. In all communities, cancer patients and their caregivers need us to forge ahead without work – including research patient services, information and resource sharing, education and advocacy.
We remain optimistic that we will be able to host our 2021 event at the Ron Pearson Center in West Des Moines, Iowa however we remain committed to analyzing the climate of the pandemic between now and then as the health and safety of our attendees, sponsors, survivors and staff are our number one priority.
Please check back between now and May 7th to see updates.
For over 25 years, the Coaches vs. Cancer program, in collaboration with the National
Association of Basketball Coaches, has united coaches and fans nationwide to help the
American Cancer Society defeat a common enemy – cancer. Because of their passion and
dedicated support, the impact has been felt in communities nationwide.
Through fundraising and education initiatives, the Coaches vs. Cancer program has supported
the American Cancer Society in helping to save more lives from cancer. Since 1993, coaches
have raised more than $110 million for the American Cancer Society.
