$49,000 and counting has now been raised through last Saturday’s Coaches vs Cancer event in Knoxville. That’s according to girls’ basketball coach and event organizer Jim Uitermarkt. That number is yet another high-water mark for the Knoxville event, topping last year’s 41,000 dollars.
Uitermarkt says almost every event had growth from last year, and new events like their 46-second challenge were well-supported. He adds it was just an all-around tremendous effort by those who had a part in planning and preparing for the event, and the community support and generosity was outstanding throughout the entire day
