Tonka Tackling Breast Cancer

Breast cancer is the second most common kind of cancer in women. About 1 in 8 women born today in the United States will get breast cancer at some point. The good news is that many women can survive breast cancer if it’s found and treated early. A mammogram – the screening test for breast cancer – can help find breast cancer early when it’s easier to treat.

National Breast Cancer Awareness Month is a chance to raise awareness about the importance of early detection of breast cancer. The Winnetonka football team recently raised over $1,100 towards the fight against breast cancer. Participating players were asked to raise $20 or more in sponsorships for the opportunity to wear a speacial pink ribbon decal on their helmet and to wear pink socks. More than 40 players participated.

9/11 Project: Giving back to first responders

In conjunction with the bevy of Military Appreciation games happening around Kansas City (including our own during game 3 against the Lee’s Summit West Titans), as well as the 13th Anniversary of the tragic events that occurred on Sept. 11, 2001, the Winnetonka Griffin football program is beginning a new tradition.

After practice Thursday the team loaded onto buses following their walk-thru and traveled to the nearby North Kansas City Fire Department station on Howell Street to volunteer their time to the men and and women that sacrifice so much for their community.

While at the station the young men of the Griffin football program washed fire engines, detailed the station, and other general maintenance. The Griffins also got a first-hand look into the lives of their local first responders, getting a real idea of what is sacrificed to keep them and their families safe on a daily basis.

The trip is intended to give thanks to the first responders and aid in developing an appropriate level of appreciation for this group of men and women that some of the players may not have possessed prior to making this special trip.

Wear Red: Tonka Honors Freedom this week

For this week's game against top ranked Lee's Summit West (2-0) the Winnetonka football program along with the Winnetonka Touchdown Club will "Honor Freedom" by collecting donations which will benefit the Wounded Warrior Project. Throughout the evening, we will recognize the armed services. Additionally, fans in attendence will have a chance to donate to the cause.

We are acutely aware of the many contributions and sacrifices that have been made by all of our military and we are committed to recognizing that sacrifice. It is the least we can do to say "thanks" for those selfless contributions made on our behalf.

We are encouraging all Tonka fans to "WEAR RED" to the game as we take on Lee's Summit West. You can buy your official Military Appreciation Night shirts throughout the week from Touchdown Club members and in the cafeteria during lunch periods at Winnetonka.

For more information or to get involved in the week's activities, contact Lyn Hewlette via email or by calling 816.806.7846.
