Help BYU Basketball Coach Dave Rose win $100,000 to fight cancer

Coach Rose needs your help to win $100,000 for cancer research done right on BYU’s campus.

NCAA Basketball: Brigham Young at Gonzaga James Snook-USA TODAY Sports

It’s that time of year — where the INFINITI Coaches Charity Challenge overtakes your Twitter feed. But it’s for such a good cause. And this time, BYU Basketball’s Dave Rose has advanced to the final round, giving him the chance to win $100,000 for the charity of his choosing. He needs your help!

The charity of Coach Rose’s choosing is one that will hit home for a lot of Cougar fans, too: The Simmons Center for Cancer Research, on BYU’s own campus.

Cancer is a cause that’s near and dear to Coach Rose’s heart, as he is a survivor of pancreatic cancer. It’s also very important to Coach Rose’s wife, Cheryl, as several of her sisters have suffered from the ugly disease. Cheryl and Coach Rose shared more about this on the last edition of the Rose Show Tuesday. Hear their emotional plea, below:
