Help Sal Fight Cancer

In the 50-year history of the franchise, Dan Saleaumua would have to rank among the top 10 most popular players with Chiefs fans. That smile, that laugh, his everyman demeanor, along with his skill at making things happen on the field made for a very big fan following.

Long after his career ended, Saleaumua continues to give back. Fans can help him assist the American Cancer Society by taking part in his Swing for the Cure Golf Tournament.

Set for Deer Creek Golf Club in Overland Park on Saturday, May 10th, Sal will join golfers for 18 holes, lunch and an awards presentation after the round. The shotgun start is 8 a.m. For an individual the cost is $125 and its $400 per foursome. All proceeds will benefit the American Cancer Society.

“No matter what else happens in our economy and in our lives, cancer never quits,” Sal said. “And we can’t quit helping to find a cure.”
