In what has become a touching and enduring display of heart and community, members of the SIU Salukis football team once again donned commemorative black jerseys during Sept. 17’s decisive win over Murray State in honor of cancer patients and their families.

Named the "best charity promotion in college football" just two years ago by Footballscoop.com, the Salukis Black Out Cancer game has raised over $200,000 for the SIH Foundation since 2011 for the effort to build the SIH Cancer Institute and bolster cancer care services for financially vulnerable patients.
