Sunday Night Lights will shine this weekend

For the sixth year, the Lindbergh community will join together to present Sunday Night Lights.

The event recreates a Friday night high school football game under the stadium lights, but on a Sunday night, as children who are battling cancer and other life-threatening childhood diseases can participate as the evening’s special guest players, band members, cheerleaders and pompon girls.

Sunday Night Lights will take place Sunday, Oct. 11, at Lindbergh High’s Flyer Stadium, 5000 S. Lindbergh Blvd. The event kicks off at 4 p.m. with a pregame carnival in the high school commons. The stadium will open to the public at 5:45 p.m., followed by pregame festivities.

A free night of fun and football, the event is hosted by more than 600 Lindbergh students and community members who work together to make the night a reality for families throughout the greater St. Louis area. Year-round student fundraisers, concession stand proceeds and community donations help make this event possible.

Last year, Sunday Night Lights hosted 64 young cancer patients and their siblings who participated as players, cheerleaders, dancers and band members. Endorsed by Friends of Kids with Cancer, Rainbows for Kids and Camp Rainbow, the event has grown to uniquely touch the lives of hundreds each year.
