The UCLA Athletic Department and Bruin Basketball are dedicated to giving back to their community and helping others in need. That is why they will be joining forces with PCRF for the 11th consecutive Dribble for the Cure at UCLA. This October over 1,200 kids, families and student athletes will join the Men’s and Women’s Basketball lineup to support the Cancer Research Program at UCLA Mattel Children’s Hospital. When you join the Dribble for the Cure, you are joining a dedicated team in the fight against pediatric cancer.

This special event includes teamwork, fundraising, a festival of activities, community booths, a short 1-mile dribble around campus, and closing ceremonies at Pauley Pavillion. With all the fun and excitement, the Dribble for the Cure transcends the importance of fundraising for this deserving cause. UCLA Mattel chooses active oncology patients as Honorary Team Captains to attend the event. Participants get to hear the kids’ stories and understand how they are helping future kids fighting cancer.
