Engage is excited to announce the launch for the 2nd year of a series of sweepstakes featuring Division I Men’s Basketball head coaches Mike Krzyzewski (Duke), Kelvin Sampson (Houston), Brad Underwood (Illinois), Fran McCaffery (Iowa), Eric Musselman (Arkansas), Porter Moser (Oklahoma), Scott Drew (Baylor), Steve Donahue (Penn), Isaac Brown (Wichita State), James Jones (Yale), Jeff Jones (Old Dominion), Mark Schmidt (St. Bonaventure), Steve Henson (UTSA), Tubby Smith (High Point), Roy Williams (UNC, retired), and Iowa student-athlete Connor McCaffery to raise funds for the American Cancer Society.
The coaches will be raffling off autographed sneakers and giving lucky fans the chance to win their sneakers. Fans will be able to donate and enter the sweepstakes starting with Thursday’s tournament tip off.
“I am always proud to participate in anything that benefits Coaches vs. Cancer,” said Iowa Head Coach Fran McCaffery. “This is an easy way for us coaches to get involved and utilize our names, and in this case, our shoes, for good. As the father of a cancer survivor, I believe that the more money we raise, the better the outcomes for cancer survivors like Patrick [McCaffery, Iowa Hawkeyes redshirt sophomore]. What a fun opportunity for fans during the madness that is March!”
“As a company overall and through Jake’s foundation and community work, we support cancer research in so many different ways,” Engage co-founder and CEO Daniel Hennes told Boardroom. “What is unique about this sweepstakes is the accessibility for all to participate, whether you want to spend $10 dollars or $500. Our focus as a brand is to democratize and digitize access to talent, and we are proud to partner with Coaches vs. Cancer to leverage the excitement of March Madness to bring incredible attention, education, and fund raising to such an important cause.”
All proceeds from the entries will benefit the American Cancer Society’s life-saving mission to end cancer. People interested in supporting the cause can learn more and donate at cancer.org/shoes.
