Miami Dolphins Press Release
Miami Gardens, FL – The Miami Dolphins announced open registration for the Dolphins Cancer Challenge 10 (DCC 10).
The signature event, which is scheduled to take place on Feb. 29, 2020, marks the tenth edition of the popular community event that raises funds for innovative cancer research at Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center, a part of UHealth — the University of Miami Health System.
This past April, more than 5,000 cancer fighters biked, ran, walked and volunteered at the annual event. The ethos of the day was celebrated by the 200 cancer survivor participants – reinforcing the motivation of the Dolphins Cancer Challenge to tackle cancer. The Survivor Program presented by the Harcourt M. and Virginia W. Sylvester Foundation will continue to share the stories of #CancerFighters, those on the front line who galvanize efforts at the DCC.
The Dolphins Cancer Challenge (DCC) was founded in 2010 by the Miami Dolphins organization as the signature initiative of the Foundation’s health impact area. The DCC’s purpose is to improve people’s lives through financial support for innovative cancer research at Sylvester, South Florida’s only NCI-designated Cancer Center. With this recent recognition from the National Cancer Institute (NCI), Sylvester is now among the top cancer centers in the United States and joins a highly select group as one of only two NCI-designated cancer centers in the state of Florida, and one of just 71 across the nation. Since its inception, the DCC has raised more than $32.5 million, donating 100 percent of participant-raised funds to Sylvester.
These initiatives align with the Miami Dolphins Foundation’s commitment towards leveling the playing field through the power of teamwork to inspire a healthier, more educated and united South Florida Community.
