A total of 7,500 Coach Kill Cancer Fund wristbands will be distributed on Saturday.
It has affected everyone in the world one way or another and it is something that hits extra close to home for Gopher head coach Jerry Kill, as he himself is a cancer survivor.
On Saturday, when the Gophers host Syracuse, there will be 7,500 wristbands distributed to benefit the Coach Kill Cancer Fund. Donations (a $2 donation for each wristband would be appreciated, but any donation will help) will be accepted for the Maroon wristbands, which say "Tackle The Tough Times" in Gold. There is also a Gold Block M on the wristband and the acronym CKCF, which stands for Coach Kill Cancer Fund.
Wristbands will be available at Block G before the game and will also be available at the Benton county entrance before and during the game. They will also be available at gates A, B, D and E when the doors open at 5 p.m.
Donations will be accepted in Gopher-branded boxes at tables at the distribution locations. Those distributing the wristbands will be easily identified as they will be wearing Coach Kill Cancer Fund t-shirts.
