Dolphins Cancer Challenge 10 Celebrates Cancer Survivors And Raises Funds
For Cancer Research At Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center.
The South Florida community rallied for the Miami Dolphins’ tenth annual Dolphins Cancer Challenge (DCC 10) raising funds for innovative cancer research at Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center, a part of UHealth – the University of Miami Health System. A record-breaking 6,000 participants biked, ran, walked and volunteered in the event. The ethos of the day was celebrated by the 250 cancer survivors who participated – reinforcing the motivation of the DCC to tackle cancer. The DCC 10 concluded at the Finish Line presented by AutoNation where participants celebrated at the Finish Line Festival presented by Moss Construction on the grounds of the tennis campus at Hard Rock Stadium. The event featured live entertainment throughout the day from the Ultimate Stage present by Ultimate Software. The festival grounds included delicious cuisine and beverages from the roof top bar and beer garden as well as games, inflatables, gondola rides at the venue’s SkyView presented by Bud Light Seltzer, a petting zoo, massages and more for the whole family. The DCC donates 100 percent of participant-raised funds to innovative cancer research at Sylvester. These initiatives align with the Miami Dolphins Foundation’s commitment of leveraging the power of sports and entertainment to inspire a healthier, more educated and united South Florida community. The DCC was founded in 2010 by the Miami Dolphins Organization as the signature initiative of the Foundation’s health impact area and has become the largest fundraising event in the NFL. The DCC’s purpose is to improve people’s lives through financial support for innovative cancer research at Sylvester, South Florida’s only National Cancer Institute (NCI) designated cancer center.
