Summer Collins serves up a treat.LAWRENCE, Kan. – Dressed as Mario Kart racers, Beanie Babies, 101 Dalmations, a set of dominoes and an assortment of other costumes, more than 90 Kansas student-athletes from a variety of teams greeted similarly dressed minis as part of the annual Crimson & Boo/”Trick-or-Treat So Others Can Eat” event inside the Booth Hall of Athletics Sunday.

A joint venture between Kansas’ Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) and the Booth Hall of Athletics, children and families were welcomed to trick-or-treat with Jayhawk student-athletes prior to Jayhawks’ women’s basketball exhibition opener against Fort Hays State. The event was free with a non-perishable food donation, which will be given to Just Food and distributed to those in need in Douglas County. Though the food had yet to be officially weighed by the end of the game, a 55-galloon drum was filled with canned food and other items for donation. 

Inside the Booth Hall of Athletics, children and their families were able to mingle with costumed Jayhawk student-athletes, going from team to team to collect candy. There was also a craft table with Kansas Jayhawk and holiday themed activities.
