September 26, 2012 - Sunday Night Lights at Lindbergh High School returns Oct. 7 for a third year, providing a fun and exciting high school football game experience to young children with cancer and other blood-borne diseases.

This year's event will include game booths from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. and a 7 p.m. flag football game on Flyers Field at Lindbergh High, 5000 S. Lindbergh Blvd.

Sunday Night Lights is open to all young patients and their families throughout the area. Lindbergh's varsity football team, cheerleaders, Flyerette dance team, Lacrosse club, marching band and Student Council are working together to make this a night the children will treasure, according to a news release.

Sunday Night Lights is an opportunity for "cancer heroes," their families and friends to enjoy a memorable evening. Young athlete participants and their families will be treated to a pre-game dinner, and then they will march onto the field and be individually announced under the stadium lights of Flyers Field. They can participate as flag football athletes, cheerleaders, dance team members or alongside the marching band.

"We'd like to encourage everyone in the Lindbergh community to come out and support these kids for a fantastic evening," event organizer Lori Krueger stated in the release.

Scout troops, schools, church groups and other organizations are invited to participate in Sunday Night Lights by hosting a carnival game booth in the LHS Commons.

Interested groups can contact Ann Ratliff at aratliff@affton.k12.mo.us.

For additional information, to make a donation or to register as a participant, visit www.lindberghfootball.com or contact Krueger at ldkrueger@aol.com.

The event is free and open to the public.
