Teamwork makes the dream work – whether you are Patrick Mahomes leading the Kansas City Chiefs to another record-breaking season or The University of Kansas Cancer Center, leading the way in the fight against cancer.
Third time’s a charm this year as The University of Kansas Cancer Center announces the collaboration with The V Foundation for Cancer Research, the Kansas City Chiefs and the Hunt Family Foundation to support our fight against cancer.
The V Foundation, https://www.jimmyv.org founded by ESPN and legendary basketball coach Jim Valvano, is partnering with the Kansas City Chiefs and the Hunt Family Foundation to offer a 3:1 matching grant of $150,000. The grant will support a junior researcher who is conducting innovative cancer research at The University of Kansas Cancer Center www.kucancercenter.org.
To meet this challenge grant, The University of Kansas Cancer Center must raise $50,000 before October 31st.
While we are humbled with gratitude, this means we have work to do.
