UW-Whitewater Men’s Basketball to Hold “Kisses From Keegan Night” on Sat., 1/25

The University of Wisconsin-Whitewater men’s basketball team will join Barkley’s Burgers, Brews & Dawgs in Janesville to support Kisses From Keegan & Friends, a local pediatric cancer foundation, on Saturday, Jan. 25, for the team’s game against UW-Oshkosh at 5 p.m. at Kachel Gymnasium.
Fans are invited to participate in a silent auction and other fundraisers throughout the game to support the organization. Members of the men’s basketball program have worked to fundraise for the event on campus and in the Whitewater community. The Warhawks will also recognize Keegan and members of the foundation’s board during the game.
“It is our hope that this event will become an annual event and part of the UW-Whitewater men’s basketball tradition,” UW-W coach Pat Miller said. “Kisses From Keegan & Friends is a local, non-profit organization that helps families of children who are undergoing treatment for cancer. It is a perfect opportunity for our student-athletes, staff and fans to engage with this organization and the community for a cause that hits close to home for a lot of people in our area.”
Kisses From Keegan & Friends was originally inspired by a 7-year-old cancer survivor named Keegan, who was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. She survived after more than two years of chemotherapy, pills, shots, lumbar punctures, surgeries and other complications.
