Summer of the Eagles: Coaches vs. Cancer

MADISON, Wis. - Edgewood College men's basketball head coach Justin Meyer, along with four other collegiate basketball coaches from Wisconsin teamed up to beat cancer last May. Coach Meyer was joined at the Coaches vs. Cancer Wisconsin Gala by UW-Madison coach Bo Ryan, UW-Milwaukee coach Rob Jeter, UW-Parkside coach Luke Reigel and UW-Platteville coach Jeff Gard.

Now in its sixth year, the Coaches vs. Cancer Gala, held at the University of Wisconsin's Kohl Center raised $690,000 to support the American Cancer Society's mission to save lives. The 2013 gala included both a silent and live auction including memorabilia, sporting events tickets, gift certificates to local business and luxury vacation getaways.

This year's total made the Coaches vs. Cancer Wisconsin Gala the number one fundraising Coaches vs. Cancer fundraising event in the nation this year.
