First envisioned in 2004 by Dave Karnes and Steve and Amy Lindsay, Kicks for a Cure was launched in April 2006. The primary purpose of the weekend is to raise awareness for cancer education and prevention. It is also an opportunity to showcase Omaha as a compassionate, vibrant community where health care, education, commerce and recreation intertwine. Since that first year, more than $2.8 million has been raised benefiting local cancer research.
