Women’s Basketball Promoting “Stronger Together” Week February 14-20

The ICC women’s basketball team will be promoting cancer awareness through their “Stronger Together” campaign during the week of February 14-20 as they host #9 Lincoln Land on Sunday, February 14 and #8 Lake Land on Thursday, February 18 at 5:30 pm.

This is the 3rd annual “STRONGER TOGETHER” campaign put on by the Cougars, which was started by the 2018-19 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 with 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 team will be wearing pink warm-up t-shirts for both games and are asking fans at home to wear any type of cancer awareness shirt (pink or not) while watching Sunday & Thursday’s games and take a picture in the shirt. Post the picture on one of the ICC WBB social media accounts (Twitter: @ICC_CougarWBB, Instagram: icc.cougarswbb, or Facebook: ICC Women’s Basketball) and give a shout-out to a person whom you’re supporting (someone who’s currently fighting), a person form who’s health you’re grateful for (someone who’s beaten cancer), or mention someone whose memory whom you’re honoring. Fans can make posts anytime throughout the week on social media, just tag ICC women’s basketball and hashtag it #strongertogether.

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.
