CINCINNATI--Two high school basketball teams are facing off to fight pediatric brain cancer in the fourth annual iWill Awareness Foundation Game.

The iWill Awareness Foundation was formed by two friends, Jonathan Boyle and Justin Goodall, in memory of their best friend, William Cox, who passed away from pediatric brain cancer in 2013.

For the past four years, the foundation game has raised money in honor of Cox.

This year’s game will be held at Princeton High School on Nov. 18. The Princeton Vikings will face-off against the Wildcats from Springfield, Ohio. Mio’s Pizzeria is sponsoring the game.

“This is our first year having a sponsor. It's grown every year,” Boyle said. “I'm excited we've got a chance to do it in Greater Cincinnati (and now) we’re reaching out to Dayton and spreading it through Ohio.”

The freshman basketball game tips off at 4:30 p.m., followed by junior varsity at 6 p.m. and varsity at 7:30 p.m.

iWill Awareness is also working with Mio’s Pizzeria for the Pizza With a Purpose event Nov. 11 at Mio's Clifton location. Mio's will donate some of the proceeds from sales between 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. to the foundation.
