Coaches vs Cancer Event - A Fun Night for a Worthy Cause
2/23/2012

At the 2012 Coaches vs Cancer event on February 23, the West Lutheran girls basketball team was prepared for two battles: one against the Mayer Lutheran Crusaders and one in the fight against cancer. Filled with exciting basketball action, frenzied fans, pep band music and dance team performances, this night was focused on raising cancer awareness and collecting funds to support cancer research through the Coaches vs Cancer and Relay for the Life programs.  For this event, funds were raised through fan donations, bake sale and t-shirt purchases.  Representatives from Relay for Life of Plymouth/Wayazata helped with the event and provided information about cancer and the Relay for Life event.  In a touching moment at half-time, West Lutheran math teacher Mrs. Gieseke gave her testimony of her journey with cancer and was grateful for the support she received from God, friends and family.  At the end of the evening, the Warriors were victorious by defeating Mayer Lutheran 52-47 and raising $1450 for cancer awareness and research.
