PROVO, Utah – On Wednesday, Dec. 14, BYU men’s basketball will continue its tradition of participating in the Children with Cancer Christmas Foundation’s annual Christmas party.

Each year the foundation collects monetary donations and unwrapped toys that go directly towards a Christmas party for more than 40 families living primarily in Utah County who have children with cancer. This year’s party will be held at the Vivint Gym at 6 p.m. MST.

The BYU men’s basketball team and head coach Dave Rose and his wife Cheryl have been involved with the Children with Cancer Christmas Foundation (CCCF) and the annual Christmas party for the past 12 years.
