To the editor:

On behalf of all of us associated with this year’s American Cancer Society Coaches vs. Cancer event at Nevada High School, I would like to thank the fans, players, coaches, and the Nevada and Roland-Story communities for their generosity and support. More than $2,265 was raised for the American Cancer Society’s research, education, advocacy and service programs.

A special thanks to the many Coaches vs. Cancer volunteers who worked to make this evening a success – celebrating the lives of those who have had cancer, remembering those lost, and fighting back against a disease that takes too much.

We also appreciate the generosity of this year’s corporate sponsors. Coaches vs. Cancer would not be possible without them. For further information about the Coaches vs. Cancer program, please visit or call 1-800-227-2345.
