SIU's Blackout Cancer is Back


By WSIL Manager

CARBONDALE-- SIU senior safety Mike McElroy left quite a legacy with the inaugural blackout cancer game. His vision was for a yearly game to fund cancer research, and today that hope became a reality.

SIU athletics is teaming up with SIH (Southern Illinois Healthcare) for a three year agreement that continues the blackout cancer game. The goal is to raise $500,000 during that partnership, with proceeds going towards the region's first cancer treatment center.
