Kohler, WI – When the girls and boys basketball programs from Kohler High School and Sheboygan County Christian High School play each other on Saturday, December 16 they will be dedicating their games to support the American Cancer Society’s efforts to help people stay well, get well, find cures and fight back.
The third annual “Shoot for a Cure: Coaches vs. Cancer Day” will begin with JV girls and boys games between 3:00-5:30 p.m. and will continue with varsity girls and boys games from 6:00-9:00 p.m. All games will be played at Sheboygan County Christian High School in Sheboygan.
For the event, the teams will have a variety of silent auction items as well as raffle prizes. There will also be a specialized event T-shirt available for pre-order (until December 3). Players and fans will have the opportunity to honor loved ones touched by cancer by leaving a message on a Wall of Hope or lighting a memorial luminary. Spectators will also have an opportunity to compete at halftime in a three-point shooting contest with the winner receiving a cash prize.
In an effort to celebrate and applaud the life of iconic sportscaster Craig Sager (who recently passed away from cancer), Kohler and Sheboygan County Christian High School students and spectators are encouraged to wear their brightest, boldest, and most unique outfits to the game for a Craig Sager dress-up contest. The best dressed will win a prize.
Since most of us have been touched by cancer in some way or another, Kohler High School and Sheboygan County Christian High School’s girls and boys basketball programs invite you to join us in our efforts to fight back by attending “Shoot for a Cure” on December 16. If you are unable to attend, but would still like to make a donation to support our efforts to raise awareness and raise funds, please feel free to make a check payable to the American Cancer Society and send it to Kohler High School Girls and Boys Basketball, Kohler High School, 333 Upper Rd, Kohler, WI 53044.
