Ready for the Dolphins Cancer Challenge?

By Life@theU
Here’s what you need to know if you’re planning to go to Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center's DCC IX on Saturday, April 6. If you’re still thinking about it, it’s not too late. Check out the $25 event offer and support your team.

Let’s start the party

On Friday, April 5, join Team Hurricanes at the Southwest Helix/South Plaza of Hard Rock Stadium for our DCC Friday Night Kick Off from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. In addition to being able to pick up your packet, there will be bike techs, merchandise, food, and more. Enjoy the evening and get excited for DCC IX the following day!

Packet Pick-Up

As a Team Hurricanes member, you will receive two packets—a Team Hurricanes packet and a DCC packet. Your DCC packet allows you to participate in the event and consists of your walk/run/ride number to display on your shirt or jersey, and some DCC items. No one can pick this packet up for you and you must have your DCC credentials in order to participate.

If you're not able to attend the kick-off party on Friday evening, packet pick-up will be available on Friday, April 5 starting at 9 a.m. at the Southwest Helix/South Plaza or Saturday, April 6 at your walk/run/ride start location. For more information, please contact

Where do I go if I’m racing?

All participants should have received an email from DCC Team Hurricanes ( this week with details on start time, location, and other important information. Please be sure to read it through and familiarize yourself before race day.
