Treads & Threads 2014 set records

The 13th annual Treads & Threads, held September 5 at Kansas Speedway, raised more than $1.4 million to support cancer patient care.

The sold-out event included gourmet food from more than 20 top restaurants and guests enjoyed a concert by pop singer-songwriter Gavin DeGraw and danced until midnight to the music of Emerald City Band.

Event chairs Russ and Debbie Welsh led an extraordinary steering committee that benefited from the support of the Allen J. and Gloria Block Family Foundation as well as the leadership of Honorary Chairs Kenneth and Lisa Block and Gloria Block. This year's event also boasted a record number of sponsorships, with Polsinelli serving as Presenting Sponsor.

This year’s proceeds support personalized cancer treatment at The University of Kansas Cancer Center, including genetic counseling and a new palliative care suite. Genetic counseling is crucial to determine the best clinical treatment options for patients. The new palliative care suite will provide a more comfortable, private setting for patients with cancer and their loved ones.

Thank you to everyone who sponsored, attended and volunteered. We hope to see you for the 14th annual Treads & Threads in 2015!
