DCC XII unites global supporters to raise $7 million—and counting

By Life@TheU
DCC participants and volunteers joined virtually and in person on Saturday, Feb. 26, to ride, walk, run, or volunteer in support of the Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center.

On Saturday, Feb. 26, more than 4,500 participants turned out to ride, walk, run, or volunteer at the 12th annual Dolphins Challenge Cancer (DCC) event, which raised more than $7 million, so far, for Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center. More than 200 teams united as one to fundraise, including University of Miami employees, students, donors, and other proud members of the ’Canes family.

This year, DCC welcomed participants’ family and friends to attend the finish line celebration at the Hard Rock Stadium, which included activities for everyone from face painting and bounce houses to massages. DCC participants had the opportunity to join the events virtually and continue to share in the mission to fight cancer and pursue fundraising to support research at Sylvester.

Participants can continue gathering contributions on their DCC XII page until Tuesday, March 15, which is the deadline to reach individual fundraising goals.
