Dribble for the Cure
making a difference in the lives of children
Today, 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.
The Pediatric Cancer Research Foundation has recognized this pressing need and has dedicated itself to supporting research efforts to find the cure for pediatric cancer. With the help of the UCLA and St. John’s University Athletic Departments, the Dribble for the Cure platform connects this mission of translational research and local pediatric oncology hospitals, helping raise research dollars 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 to help raise awareness and dollars to help save the lives of children battling cancer. At the event, participants have the opportunity to meet their local college teams, Dribble alongside the athletes through a marked course on campus, 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. Honorary Team Captains are chosen by the local hospitals and are well represented at 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.
