Kevin Ollie needs your vote.
Ollie is participating, as Jim Calhoun did last year, in the Infiniti Coaches Charity Challenge, looking to raise money for The Tolland Fund, which supports the rights of persons with disabilities to participate in sports and recreation to the best of their abilities.
Ollie is one of 48 coaches from around the country, 12 from each region, who are participating, and the coach and charity that receives the most votes in each region earns $100,000 for his cause.
The winners will be announced on March 11. You can get more information and vote online, no charge, by clicking here. (It’s an ESPN site.)
Each coach is guaranteed $5,000 for his cause. Last year, Ohio State’s Thad Motta won the $100,000 for his charity, the Ronald McDonald House of Central Ohio.
