Staff joins national Suit and Sneakers Challenge to promote cancer awareness
LAS VEGAS – 21st Century Oncology of Las Vegas will be participating in the American Cancer Society’s Coaches vs. Cancer Event on Friday, March 13, to help make a difference in the fight against cancer. The Las Vegas cancer treatment centers will be putting a spin on the typical “Wear Your Sneaker to Work Day” by hosting a “Jeans & Jersey Day” at the start of the NCAA’s March Madness Basketball Tournament.
Staff and patients will be encouraged to participate by wearing a jersey or t-shirt that represents their favorite team, whether it be college or professional, and sneakers to promote a healthy lifestyle. They will also be asked to donate a minimum of $5 to help raise money for the American Cancer Society.
“This initiative provides everyone at 21st Century Oncology of Las Vegas with an opportunity to support an important organization that helps cancer patients nationwide,” said Board Certified Radiation Oncologist Brian Lawenda, M.D. with 21st Century Oncology, “It is a fun way to support an important cause and we look forward to continue working with the American Cancer Society.”
This fundraiser is part of the Coaches Vs. Cancer Suits and Sneakers Challenge, a nationwide collaboration between the American Cancer Society and the National Association of Basketball Coaches. The event engages basketball fans throughout the nation and allows them an opportunity to make a difference in the fight against cancer at their workplace.
The 2015 Suits And Sneakers Challenge kicks off following Suits And Sneakers Awareness Weekend and will conclude with the NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Championship April 4-6. The Mountain West Conference Tournament will be taking place in Las Vegas this year and will be the same week as 21st Century Oncology’s “Jeans & Jersey Day”.
