HCAC basketball coaches come together

Raising funds for COVID-19 relief

The Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference (HCAC) men’s and women’s basketball coaches have united in an effort to raise money for COVID-19 relief, donating funds to the Jeremy Lin Foundation.

Along with their donation efforts, the HCAC coaches have challenged the men’s and women’s basketball coaches from the College Conference of Illinois and Wisconsin (CCIW) to raise money for COVID relief.

Donations to the Jeremy Lin Foundation go directly to “Feeding America” and "Direct Relief”, which are a pair of organizations supported by former NBA player Jeremy Lin.

Lin has pledged $500,000 upfront and will match any more public donations up to $500,000. So far, public donations have exceeded $137,000 through Wednesday, April 22. For more information on the Jeremy Lin Foundation, Click Here.
