Coaches vs. Cancer

Yesterday, our local high school basketball coach asked me to come out to the gym to take a team picture. The pictures I shot inspired this layout. The new "On The Edge Sports" basketball paper was a perfect choice.

Coaches vs. Cancer is something that started at the collegiate level to raise money and awareness in the fight against cancer. In Iowa, the state high school athletic agencies have encouraged local school districts to join this battle. Our student body, our school family, was dramatically touched by the ravages of this disease just last March when our long time high school principal lost his battle with brain cancer. That’s Mr. Cosens, or Cuz, as he was known around town in the upper left hand picture.

In an effort to raise money for Coaches vs. Cancer, the basketball team designed and sold these shirts.... the pink ribbon symbolizing breast cancer, the gray shirt symbolizing brain cancer. We’ll all be wearing our shirts at Friday night’s basketball game. Here's to Cuz and everyone else whose lives have been affected by this disease.
