Coaches Make A Fashion Statement
Sneakers being worn with a suit is a look seen on red carpets and in tabloids everywhere.

The initiative is a joint effort between Coaches vs. Cancer, The American Cancer Society, and National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC), and is meant to emphasize the importance of physical activity in reducing the chance of cancer.
