’Canes join the community to tackle cancer

Here’s what you need to know about this year’s DCC and how to support Team Hurricanes.

The University of Miami once again joins the South Florida community for the Dolphins Challenge Cancer (DCC), which provides critical philanthropic support to the Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center, part of the University of Miami Health System. Since its inception, the DCC has raised more than $39 million, donating 100 percent of participant-raised funds to Sylvester and providing resources to continue to drive research breakthroughs that improve the lives of cancer patients and their families.

This family-friendly team event includes the option to run, walk, or cycle, so there’s something for all members of the ’Canes family. Register now to participate with Team Hurricanes on Saturday, April 10.
