FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – Basketball programs from IPFW. Saint Francis, and Indiana Tech teamed up for the first ever Coaches vs. Cancer clinic at IPFW on Saturday.
More than eighty children attended the event. They were taught skills and got to play ball with players from all three schools. All of the money raised went the American Cancer Society.
The clinic was the brainchild of IPFW head coach, Jon Coffman. The cause strikes a cord with Coffman. His mother passed away from cancer in 2005. He’s hoping to see the program continue to grow from years to come.
