As the novel coronavirus pandemic continues to evolve, The University of Kansas Health System is focused on doing everything we can to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Keeping patients and our community safe is our priority.
To protect the health and safety of our guests and vendors, we have made the difficult decision to cancel Treads & Threads on September 11, 2020 at Kansas Speedway.
During this time when so many things are uncertain, one thing has not changed. Cancer continues to impact thousands of patients and families in our region every day.
In lieu of the live event, a group of top Treads & Threads sponsors are challenging our community to a $550,000 matching gift challenge. Donations received through September will be matched 1:1 to support The University of Kansas Health System's new proton therapy center. Your generosity is critical to bringing this targeted radiation therapy to Kansas City for both pediatric and adult patients – so no cancer patient needs to leave home for this life-saving treatment option. Cancer does not stop, even in a pandemic and we need your help now more than ever before.
