Fans will be offered free general admission with a cash donation of any amount for the Mizzou Men’s Basketball’s on Saturday, Feb. 13, with Tennessee (2 p.m.)…the first-ever Rally For Rhyan Game. The event is to raise awareness for pediatric cancer in support of assistant coach Brad Loos’ five-year old daughter, Rhyan, who was diagnosed with neuroblastoma in October.
Already slated as Mizzou’s Gold Rush Game, head coach Kim Anderson’s Tigers will now wear Gold in support of the cause.
“Our family is so incredibly thankful for the support and well wishes Rhyan has received,” Brad Loos said. “Now there is an amazing opportunity for us to bring about positive change. Pediatric cancer research is underfunded, and we can certainly do something to help. I hope Mizzou fans will take this chance to rally behind Rhyan and this cause and show their support on Feb. 13.”
Assistant coach Brad Loos talks about his daugther Rhyan’s fight with cancer.
“Pediatric cancer is underfunded, its under-supported. There’s a big group of kids who unfortunately aren’t getting their due diligence,” says Loos
Fans in attendance will have the opportunity to learn more about Rhyan Loos’ story and how to get involved in supporting the fight against pediatric cancer.
Fans are encouraged to wear Gold, as well, with a special opportunity to support the RallyForRhyan campaign available through the Tiger Team Store. Fans can purchase specially-produced RallyForRhyan Gold t-shirts for $15, with all sale proceeds donated to support pediatric cancer research.
Donations for general admission gain fans access to upper deck seating and the student section.
