Knoxville High School cancer benefit raises record $50,000

By

Knoxville High School has dominated the Iowa high school scene for several years with its Coaches vs. Cancer basketball benefit.
This year’s take — a school record $50,300, according to activities director Randy Wilson.
Hundreds of schools throughout Iowa have used high school sporting events to raise awareness and funds in a theme that is frequently pink. Knoxville’s drive included a Jan. 19 basketball doubleheader vs. Chariton.
Knoxville raised $3,000 in the first such fundraiser in 2009. That total grew to $12,000 in the community’s 2010 event. That tally has grown every year.
A year ago, $41,000 poured in, all headed to cancer charities.
Wilson said this year’s take, which passed $50,000 for the first time, was finally tallied. That’s a lot of funds for an Iowa school — or any school, anywhere.
