Pink Out TONIGHT vs Idalou

Pink Out

This Friday February 5th we will host a Pink out Coaches v Cancer Night v Idalou. Games are at 5:00, 6:30, and 8:00. We will be raising money that night with all proceeds going to the Team Tatum Medical Fund.

Tatum Schulte is the 8 year old daughter of Travis and Shawna Schulte. Her dad Travis and I coached together in Perryton and he has since moved to Canyon to become the Head Boys Basketball Coach. Tatum was diagnosed in early December with a very rare and aggressive form of bone cancer. She will be enduring 10 weeks of Chemo and then 2 surgeries. The doctors will be removing a spot that was found on one of her vertebra in one surgery and in the second they will amputate her leg. She will then endure 19 more weeks of chemo. I would encourage you to go to her facebook page at Team Tatum and learn more about this brave young girl’s fight. As sad as the situation is, Tatum’s bravery and faith in it and her family’s faith is inspiring to say the least.

We would take any and all help from organizations, would encourage you to show up and wear pink in support, or at the very least put her and her family in your prayers. We were so blessed to have the outpouring of support during Xavier’s situation and it is now our opportunity to give some of that back.

Appreciate your time and support- hug and love on your family. Nothing is guaranteed.

be blessed,
Dustin Klafka
Athletic Director/Slaton ISD
