Before beginning his third season as Princeton's head basketball coach with the first workouts of the 2013-14 season Friday, Mitch Henderson spent a day earlier this week in Washington on behalf of a cause close to his heart.

Henderson was in the nation's capital Tuesday for Lobby Day, a event organized by the American Cancer Society to increase awareness and attention to the fight against cancer.

"It was such an honor to be a part of the ACS Cancer Action Network in Washington Tuesday," Henderson said. "I enjoy doing as much as I can as part of Coaches vs. Cancer to help diminish suffering from cancer through research, education, advocacy and service. I was proud to be a part of the New Jersey ACS team throughout the day on Capitol Hill."

Henderson has participated in several events on behalf of Coaches vs. Cancer and the American Cancer Society since becoming Princeton's head coach in April 2011. He has twice headed to New York with his coaching counterparts from other schools to make appearances at the NASDAQ exchange and Yankee Stadium on behalf of Coaches vs. Cancer, and in April he spoke at the University Medical Center in Plainsboro, N.J., to promote the ACS CPS-3 initiative that aims to determine the risks that lead to cancer.
