St. Charles, Missouri (December 28, 2023) – The St. Louis Ambush proudly announce a groundbreaking collaboration with the renowned Siteman Cancer Center, marking the genesis of "Kick Cancer Night." Set to unfold on Saturday, January 20, 2024, at The Family Arena, this event stands as a testament to their joint commitment to raise awareness and support for cancer research.

The evening will witness the St. Louis Ambush facing off against the Baltimore Blast in a high-stakes 6:05 p.m. match. To spotlight the occasion, Ambush players will don specially crafted jerseys, each adorned with unique ribbons representing various cancer types. This symbolic gesture is an homage not only to the dedicated medical professionals of Siteman Cancer Center but also to honor the resilience of cancer survivors.

Shelly Clark, Co-owner, and CEO of the Ambush, expressed her enthusiasm, stating, "This marks a significant milestone as we join forces with Siteman to extend our gratitude to those who relentlessly dedicate themselves to finding solutions and cures in the battle against this formidable disease."

“We are excited to support the Ambush’s first-ever Kick Cancer Night," said Rachel Cliffe, who oversees community outreach and sponsorship for Siteman. "The team is an important partner in furthering our mission: to prevent cancer in the community and transform cancer patient care through scientific discovery.”

The featured jerseys, created by OT Sports and generously provided by Siteman, will be auctioned off to raise funds for Siteman Cancer Center’s Discovery Fund, supporting ongoing cancer research initiatives. Each jersey will bear the unique signature of the player wearing it, making these exclusive pieces both a symbol of solidarity and a cherished collector's item. Detailed information regarding the jersey reveal and auction will be disclosed in the forthcoming weeks.

In a gesture of appreciation, Siteman Cancer Center will be gifting a special item to the first 1000 fans in attendance, further amplifying the shared commitment to creating awareness and fostering a sense of community in the fight against cancer.

About The Discovery Fund

 Research grants alone cannot fully support Siteman Cancer Center’s basic and clinical research or meet all the urgent needs of our educational programs, patient care programs and infrastructure. Recruiting talented researchers, acquiring the latest research equipment and tools, and supporting new research projects are essential to Siteman’s ability to stay at the forefront of new discoveries. Your support of the Discovery Fund allows Siteman’s physicians and researchers to recruit talented faculty, establish state-of-the-art laboratories, and provide needed resources required for projects to succeed.
