MSU Suits and Sneakers

Coach Tom Izzo and Chairperson Lisa Hildorf invite you to join our Suits and Sneakers Challenge. We need local organizations, school systems, and Lansing area businesses to help eliminate cancer by hosting a Wear Your Sneakers to Work Day. Individuals make a minimum donation of $5 to the American Cancer Society for the opportunity to wear sneakers to work, with friendly fundraising competitions among participating groups.

It’s simple to get in the game, use the “Join Us” button below to register your team. Pick a day during the week of January 23, let employees know, and collect donations. If you are the highest fundraising team in your bracket you win two tickets to the Breslin Bash, a behind the scenes experience with Coach Izzo.  

Each person who joins us can take pride in knowing that they are working towards creating a world free from the pain and suffering of this disease.

The Coaches vs. Cancer Suits And Sneakers Week, January 23-29, 2017, is a nationwide event that unites coaches across the country to raise awareness about the American Cancer Society's lifesaving mission, and promote the American Cancer Society as a place for help and support. While coaching games during the week, coaches wear sneakers with their game attire as a visible reminder about the importance of nutrition and physical activity in reducing cancer risk.

The community in Lansing joins their favorite coach in the fight against cancer by hosting Wear Your Sneakers to Work Days or fundraising events at school athletic games.

The Coaches vs. Cancer 3-Point Challenge will sweep the country during the February 2017 college basketball season! Teams are squaring off to see who can score the most 3-point shots, and to raise the most money to help save lives from cancer. MSU fans across the globe can support MSU's campaign by pledging a donation for every 3-pointer they make in February. 


Special gold shoelaces, created in memory of young MSU men's basketball super-fan Lacey Holsworth, are now available for purchase at Shoe Carnival locations and online.  Basketball fans from across the nation are encouraged to purchase these gold laces and “lace up” to further our mission and support the fight for a world without pediatric cancer.
