to the students and community volunteers who joined hearts and hands to make the 7th annual
SUNDAY NIGHT LIGHTS a success!
Sunday Night Lights is a free night of fun and football for children battling cancer and other life-threatening illnesses. We recreate a Friday night high school football game under the stadium lights on Sunday night – featuring our special guests and their siblings as players, band members, cheerleaders and pom pom girls.
They are each paired with a special high school buddy and are then escorted through the event, starting with a community carnival of games and fun. After a pre-game meal they enter the stadium to the cheers of a capacity crowd and are individually introduced onto the field to participate in the activity of their choice. We take care to ensure activities are low impact and safe for all involved.
Our Mission: SUNDAY NIGHT LIGHTS is a community creating experiences for the real heroes -- kids with cancer and other life-threatening childhood illnessess.
