The bow tie has been a fashion icon of the well-dressed man for many decades. The University of Toledo has combined this increasingly popular style with the cause of raising funds for Prostate Cancer Research. Along with the support of Coach Tod Kowalczyk and his staff, the University of Toledo basketball program has engaged Rocket Nation in this annual event that has grown substantially in its three year existence. As is said at UT, “Keep calm and tie one on.”

“Our Tie One On’ game is very important to the University community because cancer is a disease that affects so many people,” said Lawrence J. Burn, University of Toledo vice president for external affairs and interim vice president for equity and diversity. “This is a tremendous opportunity for the northwest Ohio community to support the work that Dana Cancer Center is doing in the area of prostate cancer care.”

“We’re committed to supporting the fight against cancer and are making the ‘Tie One On’ game an annual date on our schedule,” Coach Kowalczyk said. “Cancer takes the lives of too many people, and we’re trying to do our small part to find a cure.”
