What is the Suits And Sneakers Corporate Challenge?
Suits And Sneakers Awareness Weekend provides coaches and their staff across the country with an opportunity to help the American Cancer Society raise awareness of the many ways people can reduce their risk of cancer, like eating right, exercising, making healthy lifestyle choices, and following the Society's recommended cancer screening guidelines — all by wearing sneakers with their suits while coaching on January 19-25, 2015. But, the Suits And Sneakers Awareness Weekend isn't just for coaches. Corporations nationwide are getting into the game, too!
To participate, corporations host a "Wear Your Sneakers to Work Day" and individuals make a minimum donation of $5 to the American Cancer Society for the opportunity to wear sneakers on Tuesday, January 20th, which is the day Coach Bo Ryan and his staff will lace up their sneakers during their game against Iowa.
If your corporation is unable to participate on January 20th, the Society encourages you to schedule your "Wear Your Sneakers to Work Day" for any day that works best for you and your company during the months of January - April, 2015.
