Men's basketball supports charity event     Send a link to a friend

[AUG. 28, 2004]  NORMAL -- The William F. Brady "Day of the Dozer" is a special charity event for Illinois State men's basketball coach Porter Moser, considering that he is the son of a land developer.

But it is also an event that raises money for cancer research and a chance for Moser and the Redbirds to lend a helping hand in the community. Team members will volunteer their time on Saturday at the Interstate Center in Bloomington where the Day of the Dozer event takes place.

The event allows kids and their families to see and ride heavy construction equipment, such as dump trucks, earthmovers and bulldozers. All proceeds for the event go to benefit the Community Cancer Center and the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation, McLean County Affiliate.

The men's basketball program has also been an active member of many other campus and community activities, such as Festival ISU and Corn Fest. Moser believes that it is important to always be giving back to those that support the program.

"Since I've been here, it's been very important to me to give back to the community," Moser said. "Day of the Dozer is such a great event that supports a great cause. Our guys will be out there interacting with the kids and their families.

"I'm glad our guys are out there interacting with people and being part of this community," Moser continued. "That's very important to me."

The Redbirds will open the regular season on Nov. 14 against Penn State in Milwaukee, Wis., at the Bradley Center with the Black Coaches Association Classic.
