Coaches vs. Cancer 2012

The Neumann University Institute for Sport, Spirituality and Character Development Award recognizes outstanding individuals in athletics. Recipients exhibit strong character through athletics, exemplify spirituality, and embody the good that exists in sports.
 
Because of their renowned leadership and generous spirit, Neumann University proudly presented the 2012 Institute for Sport, Spirituality and Character Development Award to Coaches vs. Cancer of Philadelphia.
 
Coaches vs. Cancer of Philadelphia is part of the National Coaches vs. Cancer program created in 1993 by the American Cancer Society and the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC). Here in Philadelphia, Coaches vs. Cancer has a strong presence because of our NCAA Division One basketball coaches uniting their passion and energy to raise awareness and funds to combat this disease.  Coaches Phil Martelli (Saint Joseph’s University), Fran Dunphy (Temple University), Jay Wright (Villanova University), John Giannini (La Salle University), Bruiser Flint (Drexel University) and Jerome Allen (University of Pennsylvania) may be opponents on the court, but off the court they tirelessly work together in the fight against cancer. Since its inception in 1996, Coaches vs. Cancer of Philadelphia has hosted numerous events and has raised more than $4.7 million for the cause.
 
Independence Blue Cross (IBC) is the presenting sponsor of the award.
