KU coach Bonnie Henrickson asks fans to support cancer research at weekend game

February 20, 2009


Jayhawk Fans,

I am writing this letter to ask for your help in fighting breast cancer. On Sunday, Feb. 22, our Kansas women’s basketball team will host Iowa State in our annual “Pink Zone” game. Our Jayhawks will proudly sport pink uniforms as they face the nationally-ranked Cyclones in an important game in the Big 12 Conference race. More importantly, they will be assisting in finding a cure for a deadly disease.

Kansas Athletics has generously agreed to donate $1 for every person in attendance, with the money going to both Lawrence Memorial Hospital and the University of Kansas Cancer Center. In addition, I will donate $1 out of my own pocket for every KU student in attendance.

So grab a friend or family member and head over to Allen Fieldhouse at noon this Sunday, Feb. 22, and be a part of the Jayhawks’ fight against breast cancer!

Celebrate, Remember and Fight Back. Thank you for your help.

Rock Chalk!
