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 a Sunday night -- featuring our special guests and their siblings as flag football players, marching band members, cheerleaders and pom pom girls.
Each participant is paired with a high school buddy and they are then personally escorted through the event, starting with a community carnival of games and fun. After a pre-game meal each participant enters the stadium to the cheers of a capacity crowd and are individually introduced onto the field as the game begins. We take care to ensure activities are low impact and safe for all involved.
This is a night we hope these children (and their parents) will never forget, and for some it's a dream come true, experiencing the sights, smells and sounds as the stars of a high school football night on the field!
All of this, while gently reminding these children and their families they are not alone -- they are supported by a community that cares !
Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the event?
Sunday Night Lights is open to children with cancer or other life-threatening illnesses (and their siblings) ages 2-18.
What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?
