Community members are encouraged to wear their KTC apparel to the Oct. 11 Kearney High School football game and the Oct. 18 football game at Kearney Catholic School.
All proceeds from the 2019 KTC campaign will go to area cancer patients receiving treatment at the CHI Health Good Samaritan Cancer Center to assist with the purchase of medications and other expenses incurred during treatment like food and gas.
KTC is a youth-led group, with student members from Kearney High School and Kearney Catholic School, and adult sponsors from Kearney Public Schools and Good Samaritan Cancer Center. In the past 11 years of fundraising, the KTC campaign has totaled more than $400,000, making a significant impact on local patients and families.
