Men's Basketball Joins Coaches vs. Cancer 3-Point Challenge

Cambridge, Mass. (February 1) -- The MIT men's basketball team is participating in the Coaches vs. Cancer program throughout the month of February, created jointly by the American Cancer Society and the NABC. This exciting initiative will help raise funds to fight cancer through the 3-Point Challenge campaign, where people can pledge their donations for every three-pointer the Engineers make from February 1st to the end of the season.

The challenge begins on Wednesday, February 1st as the Engineers travel to Springfield College for a NEWMAC matchup beginning at 7 p.m.

The campaign is fun and easy to get involved in. Just go to www.pledgeit.org/cvc-mit and make your pledge today! Help our school become a 3-Point Challenge Champion over other rival schools and help save lives from cancer at the same time - by raising donations for 3-pointers during games.

The Coaches vs. Cancer program and PLEDGE IT make it fun and easy to get and stay involved.

All proceeds help the American Cancer Society save lives and celebrate life. Every single day. For additional information, contact Ken Johnson at krjjr38@mit.edu or visit www.3pointchallenge.org.
