We're challenging YOU!

Give Cancer the Boot with Rob Kirkpatrick from KPEL's Acadiana's Morning News.

We're challenging businesses across the Acadiana region to let their employees wear their favorite boots on Fridays in exchange for a donation to Rob's campaign for Komen Acadiana! BigWig funds raised are invested back into Acadiana and surrounding communities through local community grants for breast health programs. Currently, Komen Acadiana is funding grants at Miles Perrett Cancer Services, University Hospitals and Clinics, St. Martin Hospital, and Southwest La Primary Health Care. It's fall and you know everyone is pulling their boots down from the top of their closets.

Email Rob@KPEL965.com if you're interested in being part of this worthy fundraiser!

Return donations by October 31st to:
