Cimino Chillin' For Charity
6/25/2014 (Updated 6:36:31 PM)Bearcats Women's Basketball Coach Linda Cimino took a break from the heat and humidity on Wednesday getting an ice water bath courtesy of her players. The event was part of a challenge issued to her in the Chillin' For Charity to benefit the Kay Yow Cancer Fund for breast cancer research. The challenge has been circulating, largely on Twitter (#Chillin4Charity) for the last few weeks. Coaches challenge one another to receive the drenching and then write a $50 check to the cause for every one of their challenges that gets met. If a coach does not complete the challenge within 48 hours, they write a $250 check to the cause.
A few of the Bearcats players also joined in on the fun challenging conference opponents to the feat with community service hours at stake.
The cause of breast cancer research is close to Cimino's heart as her mother is a two-time breast cancer survivor.
