No, he’s not running for Governor of West Virginia (although I figure he’d win in a landslide.)
Actually, Bob Huggins is asking for your vote for the Norma Mae Huggins Fund.
After the jump, we’ll explain the gist of it, and where you go to vote.
Bob Huggins is asking for you to go to ESPN.com and vote for him (not Cheatin’ Calipari) in the Infiniti Coaches Charity Challenge.
Go HERE to vote.
If he wins (right now, he’s tied at 35% of the vote with his buddy Calipari), $100,000 goes to his charity, the Norma Mae Huggins Fund.
The Norma Mae Huggins Fund was setup as a cancer research endowment fund, named after his late mother, who lost her life to cancer.
Personally speaking, cancer has taken away my grandfather in the early 90s, and also took an aunt away from me in the mid-2000s. I can understand how devastating the effects (or is it affects) can be not only on the person it is tormenting, but with the person’s friends & family.
Please vote for Coach Bob Huggins’ charity. If he wins his region, the Huggins Fund gets $100,000! And, the best part, it stays in West Virginia!
