'Coaches vs. Cancer' returns to AHS Feb. 4

ARLINGTON — Arlington High School Boys Basketball will host its fourth annual "Coaches vs. Cancer" game on Tuesday, Feb. 4, at 7 p.m.

The theme of this year's event is "Put Your PINK On," and the event will feature the game between Snohomish and Arlington.

Both schools will be introducing honorary coaches, who are either dealing with cancer or representing someone affected by the disease.

"After my wife Caryn was diagnosed with breast cancer, the community just rallied around her," AHS Boys Basketball coach Nick Brown said. "We personally saw the difference it makes when you know you're not alone in fighting this disease."

Activities during halftime will include the half-court shootout, as well as the pop-a-shot, with all proceeds from the activities being donated to the American Cancer Society.

FOX Sports Radio 1380 will be doing a live show from the gym area before the game, and raffle prizes and giveaways will be provided to fans attending the game.

Special T-shirts sporting the "Put Your PINK On" slogan will be sold at the high school during lunch hours, as well as at Arlington Pharmacy.

Special pink pompoms will be provided to attendees by Cascade Valley Hospital.
