#TeamKayla Shirts To Be Sold For Purple Out Against Illinois
Earlier this week, Saturday’s game against Illinois was declared a “purple out“ in memory of Kayla Nakonechni. Football fans are encouraged to wear either purple or gray for Nakonechni, a 2014 Penn State graduate who passed away earlier this month after a long battle with brain cancer.
To help make the purple out a reality, The Family Clothesline and pennstateclothes.com are selling #TeamKayla t-shirts. The shirts are purple, which was Kayla’s favorite color. Coincidentally, it is also the color of All Cancer Awareness. The shirts are $9.99 each, and the proceeds will be donated to THON. While you can’t run down to The Family Clothesline to pick yours up quite yet, they are already available online here.
Additionally, this weekend’s game is the annual THON football game. Fifty percent of all non-student ticket sales will benefit THON, if the promo code “THON” is used at ticket checkout. For more information about THON’s “Kickin Cancer Outta Here,” visit the Facebook event.
