Erskine girls basketball will host a White Out Night to fight lung cancer as they take on the Mt. View Mustangs on Tuesday, Jan. 27, with JV playing at 5 p.m., followed by varsity at 6:30 p.m. Fans are encouraged to wear as much white as possible, according to a news release from Erskine Academy. Beginning Jan. 19, athletes will sell Wall of Hope cards for $1 on which purchasers may either write the name of someone who has or has battled cancer or their own name to show their support. The cards will be taped on a wall by the gym. During halftime of the varsity game, JV players will collect donations. For more information, email [email protected] or call 445-2962.

The Coaches vs. Cancer program empowers coaches, their teams, and communities to join the fight against cancer by participating in awareness efforts, advocacy programs, and fundraising activities to help people with cancer today and to find cures to end the disease tomorrow, according to the release. Guided by the Coaches vs. Cancer Council, participating coaches have helped raise more than $87 million to help the American Cancer Society save lives by helping people stay well and get well, by finding cures, and by fighting back against cancer.
