Cancer survivors invited to FHSU tailgate


Cancer survivors and their families are invited to a Survivors Day tailgate celebration beginning at 1 p.m. Saturday on the east side of Lewis Field Stadium on the Fort Hays State University campus.

The party will include hot dogs, chips, cookies, drinks and football. While supplies last, FHSU football tickets are available for cancer survivors.

Kathy Cossaart, who served as chairwoman for the Day of Caring, said she came up with the idea of the tailgate celebration following the Day of Caring last year.

Cancer survivors will be asked to stand and be recognized at halftime of FHSU's game against Lincoln University, which begins at 2:30 p.m.
