ELON, N.C. — Elon University head men’s basketball coach Matt Matheny is teaming up with locally-owned SUBWAY® restaurants in the Piedmont Triad in launching a special Coaches vs. Cancer fundraising campaign.
To help get the campaign started, Matheny will join local cancer survivors as guest sandwich artists during lunch the week of January 16. Matheny will be a sandwich artist at the Subway restaurant located on 112 Lebanon Ave. on Elon’s campus on Monday, Jan. 16, from noon until 1 p.m.
The Coaches vs. Cancer program is a collaboration between the American Cancer Society and the National Association of Basketball Coaches. Locally, the North Carolina Basketball Coaches Association has joined the effort to promote healthy living, raise awareness and support for the fight against cancer.
