Coaches will wear suits with sneakers at the Lee’s Summit High School varsity boys basketball home game at 7 p.m. on Friday, January 25, in support of the American Cancer Society.

Coaches vs. Cancer Suits And Sneakers Week is a nationwide event when basketball coaches wear sneakers with their suits during games from January 21 through January 27 to help save lives from cancer by raising funds and encouraging people to educate themselves about cancer prevention, screening and early detection.

Lee’s Summit High School will provide name cards to commemorate loved ones who have battled cancer during a moment of silence at the beginning of the third quarter of the game. A charitable contribution may be made for cards. Proceeds will go to the American Cancer Society. The LSHS boys basketball varsity game against Truman High School will begin at 7 p.m. in the LSHS Fieldhouse.
