Dribble for the Cure
making a difference in the lives of children
Despite the incredible progress in technology, cancer still claims the lives of more children than any other disease. Pediatric cancer is every family’s nightmare. Parents and children’s lives are on “hold” – waiting, hoping, and searching for the cure. That’s where the Dribble for the Cure comes in.
The Pediatric Cancer Research Foundation has dedicated itself to supporting research efforts to find the cure for pediatric cancer. With the help of University Athletic Departments, the Dribble for the Cure connects research dollars with local pediatric oncology hospitals. Together we are helping communities fundraise in a fun and unique way.

HOW IT WORKS
Head coaches along with the Men’s and Women’s basketball teams join forces with PCRF and local children’s hospitals. Together we help raise awareness and dollars that will save the lives of children battling cancer. At the event participants meet their local college teams, Dribble alongside athletes, and even get autographs and photos.
With all the fun and excitement, the Dribble for the Cure really transcends the importance of fundraising for this deserving cause. Local hospitals choose active oncology patients as Honorary Team Captains to attend the event. Their stories are heard and participants are able to see where all their fundraising efforts are being directed towards – saving each of these child’s lives.
