Supporting Cancer Care and Our Community

Burns & McDonnell supports cancer research and care through Treads & Threads, the annual black-tie benefit for the University of Kansas Hospital.

For the past seven years, this soiree under the stars has brought in stellar talent and food to its home at the Kansas Speedway — and has helped raise $3.3 million to enhance cancer care for patients in our community.

In 2008, Burns & McDonnell's chairman and CEO Greg Graves and his wife, Deanna, chaired the event and helped raise more than $1 million. Proceeds from 2009 will expand treatment for blood and marrow transplant patients and establish an appearance center to help survivors feel whole again.

Burns & McDonnell will continue to support the University of Kansas Hospital and its goal to bring a national cancer institute designation to the state of Kansas.
