On Saturday, January 26 the Charlotte 49ers celebrated a big win over Fordham University. The night was also a big win for area coaches and sick and injured children as coaches, players, and fans alike celebrated Coaches Curing Kids’ Cancer / Levine Children’s Hospital Night. Former and current patients at Levine Children’s Hospital and their families attended the game and afterwards were invited to meet the 49ers basketball team and even play a game on the court!
Charlotte 49ers Head Basketball Coach Bobby Lutz has been named ambassador for Coaches Curing Kids’ Cancer (CCKC) and will assist in the regional fundraising initiative. These efforts will benefit patients at Levine Children’s Hospital.
The idea behind CCKC is simple. Youth sports teams are encouraged to donate the money they would usually raise for a coach’s gift to CCKC. Donations to CCKC fund much-needed pediatric cancer research, and, in return, the participating coaches receive commemorative certificates acknowledging their generosity.
Thanks to all who celebrated a victory for the 49ers and for children!
