Phil & Mel In The Afternoon

Weekdays 3:00PM-7:00PM

Going out for lunch next week could come with a surprise. It might be made by one of your favorite college basketball coaches. Charlotte-area coaches are taking time out of their busy season to make sandwiches and help put an end to cancer.

Fans of college basketball are familiar with the annual Coaches vs. Cancer campaign. It’s a partnership between the National Association of Basketball Coaches and the American Cancer Society to promote healthy living and raise cancer awareness. The most visible part of their fundraising efforts is Coaches vs Cancer Suits and Sneakers Awareness Week. It’s exactly what is sounds like. College basketball coaches will wear sneakers with their suits at their games during the week of January 22-28. Subway restaurants are also getting involved this year.

Head basketball coaches from nearby schools will display their sandwich making skills as Subway Sandwich Artists to gain support for the fight against cancer during the week of January 22nd. You can actually make donations in any amount at the checkout of participating Subway restaurants through February 28th with all of the proceeds going to the local Coaches vs. Cancer program. Here’s the coaches’ schedule:
