19th Annual Treads & Threads
Friday, September 11, 2020

Join us as we celebrate

This year, we are celebrating all of those involved in cancer care – especially our patients, their caregivers and our healthcare professionals. We also thank our dedicated Treads & Threads sponsors, vendors, restaurants and volunteers. Together, we continue to improve the lives of those touched by cancer.

A party with a purpose

Under the stars and inside the oval at Kansas Speedway, The University of Kansas Health System's Treads & Threads is an annual black-tie gala benefiting cancer patient care, drawing crowds of thousands of partygoers each September. The event experience includes incredible gourmet cuisine from many of the area's finest restaurants and dessert specialists, signature cocktails and specialty drinks, an exclusive concert by a headline entertainer, spectacular fireworks and a dance floor that's packed till midnight! 

Behind the fun and glamour, Treads & Threads is a party with a purpose. Since 2002, the gala has raised more than $12.5 million to expand and improve patient care at The University of Kansas Cancer Center. As the region's only National Cancer Institute-designated cancer center, our consistently high-quality outcomes and patient care have earned us a growing national reputation, including being ranked in the top 50 in the nation in U.S. News & World Report's Best Hospitals 2018-2019.
