Here’s what you need to know about this year’s DCC:

In past years, the University has supported both the DCC and the Mercedes-Benz Corporate Run. This year, we will focus our efforts exclusively on the DCC, which provides critical philanthropic support to the University’s Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center. The DCC is a family-friendly team event with the option to run, walk, cycle, or even ride virtually, so there’s something for all members of the ’Canes family.

New incentives and Team Hurricane participation details include:

  • Registration, which typically ranges from $50 to $150, is free for all members of the UM family, including faculty and staff.
  • Participants must fundraise for the event. The University will match an employee’s first contributions, up to $50, toward their fundraising goal.
  • Any University employee enrolled in Well ’Canes will receive 500 wellness points for completing the DCC.
  • All members of Team Hurricanes will receive a Team Hurricanes/UM swag bag, which will include a cycling jersey for cyclists or a t-shirt for runners or walkers, a bag, a hat, and socks.
  • All UM faculty and staff participants will receive one free ticket for a friend or family member to attend the DCC finish-line celebration. The celebration includes live music, free food, and family activities. Additional tickets can be purchased online for $25 (attendees under the age of 13 enter free of charge).
  • All Team Hurricanes members will receive 15 percent off at Mack Cycle and Fitness in South Miami (good for one year).
  • The University will host a Team Hurricanes appreciation party for DCC faculty and staff participants.
