Once a year, John Calipari and the rest of the Kentucky staff ditch their dress shoes for sneakers for a game to promote cancer awareness; tonight is that night. Kentucky’s coaches and staff will be wearing these Nikes tonight as part of the annual Coaches vs. Cancer Suits and Sneakers Week.
Our coaches and staff will be wearing these shoes tonight in support of @CoachesvsCancer #SuitsandSneakers Week. One in three people will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. We hope you will support the NABC and @AmericanCancer Society in the fight against cancer. pic.twitter.com/XuuMTIDA4H

The Coaches vs. Cancer program is a nationwide collaboration between the American Cancer Society and the National Association of Basketball Coaches to increase cancer awareness and promote healthy living through year-round awareness efforts, fundraising activities, and advocacy programs. Since 1993, coaches have raised more than $100 million for the American Cancer Society.
