The 2017 Kick-a-Thon will kick into high gear once again.

The combined effort by St. Charles East and North high schools will commence during football action on Sept. 15 hosted at East.

Guests should be expected to arrive around 5:30 p.m. The Kick-a-Thon will take place at the conclusion of the sophomore football game.

Over the course of 24 years, the two schools' iniative has raised over $1 million, according to kick-a-thon.org. In 2016, both drill teams raised and donated over $100,000 to the Fox Valley Chapter of the American Cancer Society, LivingWell Cancer Resource Center and Fox Valley Food for Health.
