We are delighted to announce that our CEO, Kyle Decker, partnered up with Wes Miller, head coach of the University of Cincinnati Men’s Basketball Team, to participate in Coaches vs. Cancer Suits and Sneakers Week. The week was held from January 22nd to January 28th and was dedicated to raising awareness for cancer screening.
Throughout the week, our internal team members and clients were actively engaged with a series of informative communications and cancer screening resources. This was a great opportunity to educate our company on cancer screening awareness and show we are dedicated to making a difference.
What is Coaches vs. Cancer?
Coaches vs. Cancer focuses on raising funds and awareness for cancer screening. By utilizing the platform of coaches and executives, the initiative aims to emphasize the crucial importance of cancer screening and draw attention to the particular importance of screening for certain groups. Coaches vs. Cancer saw significant success last year with 41 Coach + CEO Partnerships, 415,000 lives touched, 11,500 visits to the donation link, and $330K+ raised. We can’t wait to see the growth and success this initiative will achieve this year!
The week was concluded at the UC Men’s Basketball home game versus UCF on Saturday, January 27th. During the game, we commemorated Suits and Sneakers Week and were recognized for our partnership and $10,000 donation to the American Cancer Society’s Initiatives. Furthermore, we had the opportunity to showcase our Splash 4 Cash Initiative at the game. Congratulations to our winner Cole, who will receive $100.00 for making one basket!
We are honored to be able to help make a difference in the fight against cancer. A huge shoutout to the University of Cincinnati and Coach Wes Miller for choosing to partner with Kyle and Riley Decker Companies for this meaningful initiative. We are grateful for the opportunity to contribute to this cause and look forward to our continued involvement with this initiative in the future.
