Hoops for Hope
The Southeast Warren basketball teams and Student Council are
joining forces with Coaches vs. Cancer in the fight against cancer.
In the time it will take you to read this letter, five people have
been diagnosed with cancer and another two will have died from the
disease. One of two men and one of three women will get cancer in
their life time. Three of four American families will have at least
one family member diagnosed with cancer (information Courtesy of
the V Foundation)
Please join us in the fight against cancer by purchasing a Southeast
Warren Hoops for Hope shirt. These shirts are pink to represent
the fight against breast cancer with a heather grey ribbon to signify
brain cancer. These shirts are encouraged to be worn to
the SEW home basketball game on January 17th.
Approximately $10 of each shirt will be donated to the American
Cancer Society, and all the money will used in the state of Iowa.
