The Dolphins Challenge Cancer (DCC) was founded in 2010 by the Miami Dolphins organization as the signature initiative of the Foundation’s health impact area and has become the largest fundraising event in the NFL. Since its inception, the DCC has raised more than $45M, donating 100 percent of participant-raised funds to Sylvester.
The Dolphins Challenge Cancer (DCC) announced an expansion of its partnership with the V Foundation by way of a $5M commitment to support innovative cancer research at Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center, part of UHealth – the University of Miami Health System. The V Foundation’s commitment of $500,000 a year will be matched by the DCC over the next five years, making a total of $5M funded for critical cancer research. The research will focus on disparities.
