‘Coaches vs. Cancer’ raises $400,000 at Blackthorn Golf Club

SOUTH BEND, Ind. (WNDU) – On Tuesday, Notre Dame men’s basketball coach Mike Brey hosted the “Coaches vs. Cancer’ at Blackthorn Golf Club.

This year’s event raised $400,000 for cancer research, the majority of which resided in Michiana, at the Harper Institute of Cancer on the Notre Dame campus.

Coach Brey talked about what makes this event so special, and why he’s getting involved in this event, one of the fundraisers taking place across the country.

“The great thing about Coaches vs. Cancer, 90 percent of the funds stay in our area, and I think that’s really important,” Mike Brey said. “For example, when we started this charity, there was no Harper Institute for Cancer on our campus. There it is, and the fundraiser for Harper came to me last night when we handed over the $400,000 check and it said Mike is going to be doing ten years of research at Harper, and research is what’s going to beat this thing, and it beats it. And that made you feel, man, it’s a home game. You know? It’s a home game.”
