Virginia Tech hosts cancer fundraiser

Virginia Tech's basketball program will hold a fundraiser to support research for brain cancer in honor of Allen Calloway, a forward for the Hokies from 2002 to 2006. Calloway died in February 2009 after a four-year battle with cancer.

Commemorative bracelets with "AC #21" and "Forever A Hokie" on them will be sold for $1 each at the University Book store on Virginia Tech's campus in Blacksburg, Volume II Bookstore off campus or the HokieShop in Cassell Coliseum on game days.

The Hokies (16-4, 3-3 ACC) play host to North Carolina (13-8, 2-4) on Thursday night.

The goal of the initiative is to raise $3,021 and present a check prior to Virginia Tech's meeting with Wake Forest on Feb. 16. The $21 extra dollars is in honor of the jersey number Calloway wore during his Hokie career. All funds will go to the American Cancer Society.

Individuals or groups wishing to purchase a minimum of 100 wrist bands or to make a private donation can do so my e-mailing the Virginia Tech basketball office at or mailing a check made out to the American Cancer Society to Men's Basketball Calloway Tribute, Jamerson Athletic Center, Blacksburg, Va. 24061.
