Both, the baseball teams of Texas State University and Texas A&M University, honored Coach Ty Harrington, the former’s head coach and a colon cancer survivor, in last night’s matchup by wearing #BlueKnots, our custom colon cancer awareness shoelaces. Everyone from the players to the coaches to the staff members at the field, joined in on raising awareness last night.
“The hope is that there’s some people here tonight who will leave more aware of colon cancer and finds sometimes to get a colonoscopy done at some point,” said Coach Harrington. “Hopefully, the Kiel Colon Cancer Foundation saved somebody’s life tonight.”
Prior to the game, our CEO George Kiel got the opportunity to throw out the first pitch and was invited to be a part of a few interviews with Texas State athletics radio, Fox KTBC news station and a few others. Texas State also shared some of our promo videos in between innings.
Thanks to the Texas State and Texas A&M athletic departments for letting us be a part of a special night!
