THE ANNUAL KICKS FOR A CURE WEEKEND

Out of concern for the health and safety of our athletes, sponsors, volunteers, and guests, we regret to inform you that the annual Kicks for a Cure Event, scheduled for April 17-18, 2020, has been cancelled.

Mark your calendars for the 2021 Kicks for a Cure Weekend, April 16-17, 2021!

The Kicks for a Cure weekend, which is kicked-OFF with a party on Friday evening, honors Liz Karnes and her love of soccer. Saturday’s soccer games (featuring local teams) offer an opportunity for families to cheer on the athletes and spread awareness for a great and important cause.

Funds from the weekend go directly to cancer research at the Fred and Pamela Buffett Cancer Center and the Hereditary Cancer Center at Creighton University in Omaha. Heading into its 15th year, proceeds from past events total an impressive $3,200,000.

2020 Inspiration Award Winner

Steve and Barb Durham

“We are really involved [in Kicks for a Cure] because of Liz and Dave and our lifelong friendship with the Karnes. A few years ago I didn’t have any idea what oncology was. Having experienced what I have been through and especially what Liz had to endure has made me extremely passionate about finding a cure.” – Steve Durham

Steve Durham, an Omaha native, and his wife, Barb, currently resides in Clear Lake, TX. They have two sons, one daughter, and six grand children. Steve is a cancer survivor. 

The Inspiration Award is presented to an individual, family or group that has contributed significantly to the success of the KFAC event and its efforts to increase cancer awareness locally and statewide.
