BERKELEY HEIGHTS, NJ - The Berkeley Heights PAL basketball coaches wrapped up their season on Saturday with a game for the cure.  The PAL basketball community generously supported this event raising $535 for the American Cancer Society. 

Jeff Garrigan, PAL Basketball Commissioner, organized this Coaches vs. Cancer fundraising game said, " I was happy to see so many parents and kids come out to cheer on their coaches."

PAL players helped with the score board and Gov. Livingston varsity basketball players Patrick Mahoney and Nick DiSarno officiated. 
 
 
"I hope it continues next year as it was a fun night out and certainly for a good cause," said Garrigan.

The Coaches vs. Cancer program is a nationwide collaboration between the American Cancer Society and the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) that empowers basketball coaches, their teams, and local communities to make a difference in the fight against cancer. The program leverages the personal experiences, community leadership, and professional excellence of basketball coaches nationwide to increase cancer awareness and promote healthy living through year-round awareness efforts, fundraising activities, and advocacy programs.

Because cancer has touched so many of our nation's basketball coaches, Coaches vs. Cancer offers them the unique opportunity to fight the disease. Through integrated fundraising activities and public awareness campaigns, participating coaches are truly making a difference in the fight against cancer and are raising awareness in their communities about the importance of cancer prevention, early detection, and making healthy lifestyle choices.
