DETAILS: The Miami Dolphins will host its annual Dolphins Cancer Challenge, the DCC 10, on Saturday, Feb. 29, 2020. This 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.
DCC 10 weekend will commence with the Kickoff Party on Friday, Feb. 28, followed by the DCC signature event on Saturday, Feb. 29, that will include five bike routes through South Florida and a run/walk 5K presented by Ambetter – extending the opportunity for cancer fighters to be of all ages and all capabilities.
DCC 10 will conclude at the Finish Line Presented by AutoNation and celebrate with a Finish Line Festival presented by Moss Construction on the grounds of the tennis campus at Hard Rock Stadium. The event will feature live entertainment throughout the day from the Ultimate Stage present by Ultimate Software. The festival grounds will include delicious cuisine and beverages from a roof top bar and beer garden as well as games, inflatables, a petting zoo, yoga, massages and more activities for the whole family.
Additionally, DCC 10 will spotlight survivors – their resiliency and path to overcome the obstacles cancer presents in their journey. The Survivor Program presented by Harcourt M. and Virginia W. Sylvester Foundation will share the stories of #CancerFighters, those on the front line who galvanize our efforts at the DCC.
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. 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.
The event is OPEN to the public.
