This week is pink week at Kansas Wesleyan University.
The Kansas Wesleyan University Athletic Department, in conjunction with Breast Cancer Awareness Month, is raising funds for the Tammy Walker Cancer Center this year during Pink Week Activities.
The week kicks off on Monday with a special fundraiser at Chili’s. For any customer with the promotional voucher, Chili’s will donate 10% of the sales to the Tammy Walker Cancer Center. Coyote coaches and student-athletes will be at the restaurant to welcome guests during the lunch and dinner hours.
The soccer and volleyball games this week will include silent auction for game-worn pink jerseys. There will be a number of other special events taking place at the games, including bake sales and raffles.
