Join Team Hurricanes and help the Dolphins Challenge Cancer


Join Team Hurricanes and help the Dolphins Challenge Cancer

’Canes across South Florida and around the world can join Team Hurricanes in this signature community effort to support cancer research at Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center.

Many of us know someone—a loved one, a work colleague, a classmate, a neighbor—who has been affected by or is currently fighting cancer.

By joining Dolphins Challenge Cancer, you honor their fight and commit to making an impact on the lives of countless others and the future of cancer research at the Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine.

In the 12 years since its inception by the Miami Dolphins, DCC has raised more than $45.5 million. Its 30,000-plus participants have covered almost 1 million miles biking, running, or walking. DCC is now the largest team fundraising event in the National Football League.

DCC XII is happening on February 26, 2022, and there are a few ways you can join the fun and help in the fight against cancer:

In person: If you’ll be in South Florida on February 26, you can register to walk, run, or ride with Team Hurricanes at DCC XII. Choose from 100-, 50-, 35-, or 15-mile bike rides, paced to welcome both avid cyclists and first-timers, or the 5K run/walk. 

You can register to join Team Hurricanes—Students and Alumni or create your own sub-team; make sure to type Team Hurricanes before your team’s name during registration. Registration is free for all ’Cane alumni and friends with the promo code GOCANES12. (Please note: all participants are responsible for their fundraising minimums.)

All registered participants will receive a Team Hurricanes t-shirt or cycling jersey, as well as a Friends and Family ticket to the festivities. And, if you register by December 1, 2021, you’ll receive a $50 credit toward your fundraising minimum.

Virtually: Can’t join us in person? You can register as a virtual participant and help us raise money from anywhere in the world. Raise or donate at least $25 as a virtual participant and you’ll receive a Team Hurricanes t-shirt.

As a sponsor: If your company is interested in potential sponsorship opportunities, please email us at to learn more.

Through your giving: The simplest way to support DCC is also the most meaningful—by making a gift to Team Hurricanes or another team. Remember, every dollar raised goes toward Sylvester’s pursuit of the next breakthrough, the next discovery, and the next cure.
