Graham crusade rescheduled for October kickoff

Friday, May 28, 2004

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Evangelist Billy Graham has rescheduled his 2004 Kansas City Crusade for Oct. 7 to Oct 10, according to the committee planning the event.

The event at Arrowhead Stadium had been scheduled to begin June 17 and run through June 20, but was postponed after Graham, 85, broke his pelvis May 14 in a fall at his home. At the time, the famed evangelist was recovering from a partial hip replacement performed in January.

That procedure was performed after Graham broke his left hip in a fall in a hotel room.

Two other crusade-related events will proceed as scheduled -- "Operation Arrowhead," a prayer event that will surround the stadium on June 5, and The Billy Graham Evangelistic Association School of Evangelism, scheduled for June 16-18 at a Kansas City hotel.
