Nov. 17, 2004

LAWRENCE, Kan. – Rock Chalk wristbands, modeled after the Lance Armstrong Foundation Livestrong wristbands, are now available exclusively through or at home KU Athletic events, the University of Kansas athletic department announced Wednesday.

The blue wristbands, with the words ‘Rock Chalk’ embossed on them, cost one dollar. Proceeds will be used exclusively to support student-athletes scholarships at KU through the Williams Educational Fund.

“Our athletic teams here at KU have some of the most supportive fans in the nation,” Athletics Director Lew Perkins commented. “We hope that all of our great fans will wear these bands as a symbol of their support for our teams and as a sign of their pride in being a Jayhawk.”
