DOLPHINS CHALLENGE CANCER 2021 marked another record-breaking year for the Dolphins Challenge Cancer (DCC). On April 10, thousands of participants came together — both virtually and in person — to ride, walk and run to raise funds for innovative cancer research at Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center. It was a day of unparalleled inspiration, as the DCC marked the first major live event for our community since the pandemic began. In 2020, the Miami Dolphins announced a transformational $75 million commitment to Sylvester, the largest known philanthropic pledge in sports history.

To date, the DCC has raised over $45.5 million dollars for innovative cancer research. Together, we are one team, one fight!

“The DCC began 11 years ago with one goal in mind: to unite the community against one of the most insidious diseases of our generation. Today, the DCC is a year-round movement focused on the challenge the cancer community faces every day, reminding us that you don’t have to have cancer to fight cancer.”
Tom Garfinkel, vice chairman, president and CEO of the Miami Dolphins and Hard Rock Stadium.
