Snoop Dogg and Matt Barnes continue to help support the fight against cancer. On Sunday, the two stars held the fifth annual Athletes vs. Cancer All-Star Weekend.
Barnes created the nonprofit Athletes vs. Cancer (AVC) in memory of his mother, who died just 26 days after being diagnosed with stage four cancer, according to the organization’s website.
“This nonprofit is a community of influencers — musicians, athletes, actors — who come together to bring awareness to cancer but also support families who are harmed by cancer,” said Holly Baird, communications director for AVC. “They provide scholarships, care packages and all-around support for families.”
Heisman Trophy winner Reggie Bush also participated at the event.
“I think everybody here has been affected in some way, shape or form by cancer. Obviously, it’s a nasty disease. It’s taken a lot of people way too soon. I’ve been affected by it, close family members, friends, co-workers, and so I’ve known Matt and Snoop for a long time and they’ve supported me for a long time, so it’s only right that I come to support them.”
