Get your PINK ON and come support Atchison County Kickin’ Cancer in the group’s annual Pink Out fundraiser. Atchison County Kickin’ Cancer (formerly Atchison County Relay for Life and Schoolhouse Rock teams) is a non-profit organization built to raise funds to help those locally who are or have been diagnosed with cancer. All money raised stays in Atchison County to help with medical bills, transportation, etc. that is needed by cancer patients.
The Pink Out events will be held Thursday, October 6, 2016, at Tarkio High School during the East Atchison volleyball match against Mound City AND Friday, October 14, 2016, at Kyle Field at M.
