  • Lee's Summit North High School DECA marketing students are hosting Testicular Cancer Awareness Nights later this month.
    The event is Nov. 19 and 29 at the high school. Both special events will begin at 7 p.m. as part of the varsity basketball games at the Lee’s Summit North fieldhouse.
    During the games, DECA students will sell raffle tickets to audience members for $1, entering each ticket holder into a drawing. Drawing winners will have the opportunity to take a half-court shot and win gift cards. Money raised through the drawing will be donated to the Testicular Cancer Society.
    Throughout the event, DECA members will be distributing testicular cancer awareness materials. As part of the awareness effort, DECA members are working with Karen McWhirt, author of a book focusing on her son’s experience with testicular cancer. The book was recently donated to the Lee’s Summit North High School library media center by the local author.
    McWhirt will be at the Nov. 19 and 29 basketball games to sell her book, “Together We Will Win,” and talk to those attending. The book will be sold at a discounted price with half of all book sale proceeds going to the Testicular Cancer Society. In addition, she is speaking to several boys physical-education classes about her son’s experience with testicular cancer and providing preventative information.
