Sept. 2, 2005


Kansas Athletics will donate $10,000 to the Hurricane Katrina relief efforts, University of Kansas Athletics Director Lew Perkins announced Friday.

“We are making this donation on behalf of our student-athletes, coaches and our entire athletics family,” Perkins said. “As we kick off another exciting season of Jayhawk football, we need to stop and remember the countless victims in the Gulf Coast.”

Perkins said fundraising efforts by the students of the University of Kansas have already begun, and will culminate at the KU vs. Louisiana Tech football game on September 17. He said KU students and student-athletes will collect donations at KU’s first three home football games.
