The University of Kansas Health System’s Treads & Threads is an annual black-tie gala benefiting cancer patient care.

Behind the fun and glamour, Treads & Threads is a party with a purpose. Since 2002, Treads & Threads sponsors, patrons and guests have contributed more than $15.2 million to further expand and improve cancer care at The University of Kansas Cancer Center. As the region's only NCI-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center, our consistently high-quality outcomes and patient care have earned us a growing national reputation, including being ranked in the top 50 in the nation in U.S. News & World Report's Best Hospitals 2021-2022.

The 20th anniversary event

The University of Kansas Health System is celebrating its 20th anniversary Treads & Threads at the home of 2 of Kansas City's hometown favorites: Truman Sports Complex. Join us!

Proceeds from this year's event will enrich our nationally recognized cancer program, which now provides one of the most advanced methods of radiation treatment available – proton therapy. The new Proton Therapy Center – 1 of only 39 in the country – serves patients from throughout the region and beyond. Providing proton therapy further strengthens our ability to ensure patients receive comprehensive, world-class care close to home.
