ICC Athletics Promoting “Stronger Together” Week February 14-20
The ICC athletic department is hosting a “Stronger Together” campaign to help raise awareness for cancer research and give support to those in the fight during the week of February 14-20. Several teams have games that they will be observing the campaign:
- Sunday, Feb. 14: WBB & MBB vs. Lincoln Land at 1 & 3 pm
- Wednesday, Feb. 17: VB vs. Sauk Valley 6 pm
- Thursday, Feb. 18: WBB vs. Lake Land at 5:30 pm
- Thursday, Feb. 18:Softball vs. Spoon River College at 1 & 3 pm (Pekin Dome)
- Saturday, Feb. 20: Volleyball vs. John Wood at 12 pm & 5 pm vs. Kankakee
The original “STRONGER TOGETHER” was started by the 2018-19 women’s basketball team as they promoted the theme of being “stronger together” to those in the fight with cancer, knowing that no one fights alone. Since that season, the women’s basketball program has raised and donated over $6,000 to Peoria-area charities. The 2018-19 team donated some of the monies to purchase a blanket warmer at the Illinois Cancer Care facility in Peoria for patients to use during chemotherapy treatments.
The goal is to raise awareness for the fight against cancer as well as share support for those currently in the fight, show gratitude for survivors, and honor the memory of special loved ones. If interested, fans can donate to the Illinois Cancer Care Foundation in Peoria at https://illinoiscancercarefoundation.org/donate or mail a check to Coach Redeker at: ICC, Attn: Karrie Redeker, WBB Coach, 1 College Drive, East Peoria, IL 61635. Please note in/on your donation that it’s for the “ICC WBB Stronger Together” campaign). Contact Coach Redeker at [email protected] if you have any questions about how or where to donate.
We appreciate your support & will continue to work to show that we are all STRONGER TOGETHER!
