The Coaches vs. Cancer Southwest Ohio 2011 Tip-Off Breakfast will take place on Wednesday, November 2, 2011 at the Hyatt Regency Cincinnati at 8:00-10:00 a.m. This event offers guest a morning of food and fun as Coaches and sports media personalities discuss this up coming season.

Tickets are $75 each and will be available at 9 a.m. on October 7, 2011.

"To bring the regions' college coaches together for a fight that we all believe in is very important," said Xavier head men's basketball coach Chris Mack. "I think the breakfast will give fans an opportunity to hear from coaches about their respective seasons but at the same time, highlight what the event is all about and that's raising money and awareness to help fight the disease. Coaches vs. Cancer more than wearing sneakers in January, and it's very humbling to be a part of it."
Coaches vs. Cancer is a nationwide collaboration between the American Cancer Society and the National Association of Basketball Coaches that empowers athletic coaches, their teams, and communities to join the fight against cancer.
The program leverages the personal experiences, community leadership, and professional excellence of these coaches to raise awareness and funds to fight the disease through year-round educational efforts and fundraising activities. Since the program's inception in 1993, high school and college basketball coaches and their spouses from across the country have raised more than $70 million to support the Society's work to save lives and create a world with less cancer and more birthdays.

About the American Cancer Society The American Cancer Society combines an unyielding passion with nearly a century of experience to save lives and end suffering from cancer. As a global grassroots force of more than three million volunteers, we fight for every birthday threatened by every cancer in every community. We save lives by helping people stay well by preventing cancer or detecting it early; by helping people get well by being there for them during and after a cancer diagnosis; by finding cures through investment in groundbreaking discovery; and by fighting back by rallying lawmakers to pass laws to defeat cancer and by rallying communities worldwide to join the fight. As the nation's largest non-governmental investor in cancer research, contributing about $3.5 billion, we turn what we know about cancer into what we do. As a result, more than 11 million people in America who have had cancer and countless more who have avoided it will be celebrating birthdays this year.
