Lansing High Kayettes to collect funds for breast cancer research

October 26, 2006

Lansing High School Kayettes encourage the community to think pink this Halloween.

In coordination with National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Kayettes will visit Lansing neighborhoods after school today, Oct. 26, and Friday, Oct. 27, to collect money for their fifth annual Trick or Treat for Breast Cancer campaign.

Donations benefit breast cancer research through the Susan Henke Miller Breast Cancer Research Fund at the Kansas Masonic Cancer Research Institute in Kansas City, Kan.

Club sponsor Debra Hutton said the group hoped to surpass last year's record-setting amount of $900 in donations. Kayettes collected $252 for the cause during the Autumn in the Grove fall festival Oct. 14.

Community members also can contribute through Tuesday, Oct. 31, by placing donations in the pink pumpkins in the main offices at all four Lansing schools. Checks should be made out to KUEA, Kansas Cancer Institute and list the Susan Henke Miller Fund on the memo line.
