More than 3,300 cancer fighters joined forces this Staurday to bike, run, walk, volunteer or donate to the 6th annual Dolphins Cancer Challenge (DCC). “The Dolphins Cancer Challenge is about everyone working together to fight cancer,” Miami Dolphins President & CEO and DCC VI Chair Tom Garfinkel said. The DCC will donate 100 percent of the participant-raised funds to innovative cancer research at Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center.
The star studded event brought support from NFL greats, including Grand Marshals and Dolphins Executive Vice President of Football Operations Mike Tannenbaum and Head Coach Adam Gase, as well as Dolphins players and alumni such as Dan Marino, Nat Moore, Dick Anderson, A.J. Duhe, Kim Bokamper, Chris Conlin, John Offerdahl, Mark Duper, Michael Thomas and Ndamukong Suh. As an added bonus, the DCC, for the first time in challenge history ended the event with a Concert Celebration which featured performances by Grammy Award winning artists, Sheryl Crow and Melissa Etheridge.
“It was an honor to play in front of thousands of cancer fighters today,” Sheryl Crow said. “The electric atmosphere at the stadium, surrounded by people all united for one cause – what an amazing day.”
The Dolphins Cancer Challenge will continue to raise funds for cancer research with its inaugural DCC Celebrity Golf Tournament hosted by Turnberry Isle Resort & Golf Club on April 4, 2016. For more information visit www.DolphinsCancerChallenge.com
