Oct. 6, 2009


Kansas soccer will kick off the 2009-10 “Jayhawks for a Cure” campaign Sunday, Oct. 11, during its 1 p.m. match against Colorado at the Jayhawk Soccer Complex. Fans wearing pink to the game will be admitted for $3.

Donations will be accepted at the door or fans may download a donation form here. In addition, Kansas Athletics’ new concession partner, Centerplate, will donate one dollar for every hamburger sold at the game. All donations will support breast cancer treatment and research at Lawrence Memorial Hospital and the KU Cancer Center.

Along with Kansas soccer’s event on Sunday, a number of “Jayhawks for a Cure” events are planned for the 2009-10 athletic year. KU volleyball will host an event during its Oct. 27 match against UMKC, while Kansas swimming and diving will also highlight breast cancer awareness and collect donations on Oct. 30 when they host Missouri. Kansas women’s basketball will host its annual WBCA Pink Zone game in Allen Fieldhouse on Feb. 7 when it faces Kansas State.

The 2008-09 “Jayhawks for a Cure” campaign netted over $15,000, benefiting Lawrence Memorial Hospital and the KU Cancer Center.
