FAIRFIELD, Conn. -- The Fairfield University men's basketball team is competing against other basketball programs in the American Cancer Society’s Coaches vs. Cancer 3-Point Challenge.

The Coaches vs. Cancer 3-Point Challenge allows over 200 college and high school basketball teams nationwide to raise money and awareness against cancer. Fans can make their pledge for each 3-point shot the Stags makes from now through March 4 by visiting https://pledgeit.org/cvc-fairfield . The donations will support the American Cancer Society’s research, education and patient programs.

The 3-Point Challenge will pit teams against each other to raise the most funds, as fans follow the leaderboard on http://www.3pointchallenge.org to see who will become the 3-Point Challenge Champion.

More than 20 years ago, former University of Missouri head basketball coach Norm Stewart provided the vision and inspiration for Coaches vs. Cancer. A cancer survivor and National Association of Basketball Coaches member, he challenged fans to pledge a dollar amount for each 3-point shot his team made during the season. This 3-Point Attack concept evolved into the nationwide effort uniting coaches, fans, players, and communities in the fight against cancer, and is now known as the 3-Point Challenge.
