from LS R-7 Schools

LSW will compete against Lee’s Summit North High School with freshman games beginning at 3:30 p.m. and junior varsity game beginning at 5:30 p.m. The cancer survivor/fighter procession/speech will begin at approximately 7 p.m. and will be followed by the varsity game.

Event beneficiaries this year include the Center for Hope and Healing, an organization focused on helping individuals with illness and their families; Bags of Fun Kansas City, which provides toys to children with cancer and other long-term illnesses; and the Children’s Mercy Hospital Facility Dog Program/Canine Assistants, a therapy dog organization.

Dig for the Cure provides a meaningful setting for the two Lee’s Summit R-7 high school teams to work together in support of three worthy benefactors. As in year’s past, Dig for the Cure will feature a court procession to honor cancer survivors and fighters, and to pay tribute to the memory of those lost to this disease.

Advance T-shirt sales are available again this year, and anyone wearing a T-shirt to the event will receive free admission to the event. T-shirts are available for $10 at the Hy-Vee on Third Street on Sept. 23.

This year’s silent auction and raffle feature a Dig for the Cure quilt, MLB authenticated items from the Kansas City Royals, signed Kansas City Chiefs and KC Sporting items, a John Deere riding lawn mower, several theme baskets and much more.
