BATON ROUGE – LSU men’s basketball Coach Will Wade needs your help Friday and Saturday morning to allow him to continue in the annual Coaches Charity Challenge to help raise money for the Baton Rouge Youth Coalition.

Coach Wade advanced as one of 24 coaches to the second round which concludes at 10:59 a.m. CT on Saturday. The top 16 coaches advance to the third round. So far Coach Wade has earned $7,500 for the BRYC.

Fans can help advance the Coach to the third round where the charity receives a minimum of $10,000 by going to es.pn/2hzHs9P and voting Friday and then again Saturday morning on any device – computer, smartphone and tablets.

The event started with 48 coaches back on Jan. 2.

The BRYC provides support for high-achieving, under-resourced high school students so they can enter and continue their college careers.

The eventual winning coach gets $100,000 for their charity organization.
