Dribble For The Cure Returns To St. John's University On September 21, 2019
The event will kick-off at 10:00 a.m. with a festival featuring the St. John's cheerleaders and band, games and refreshments. Each participant will bring a basketball (or buy one on site) for the mile long course winding through campus and ending at Carnesecca Arena. Finish line festivities are slated to begin at 12:15 p.m., giving participants a unique opportunity to meet for autographs and pictures with the men's and women's basketball teams.
Each participant will be asked to collect donations for their "Dribble" and will be eligible for prizes based on the amount of pledge money turned in by the date of the event. In addition, each participant will receive a t-shirt and souvenir bag.
Proceeds raised from this event will be directed to the Pediatric Cancer Research Foundation in support of the PCRF Laboratory at New York Medical College. The PCRF Laboratory is directed by Mitchell S. Cairo, M.D., also director of the Children and Adolescent Cancer and Blood Diseases Center at Maria Fareri Children's Hospital.
"This is an outstanding opportunity to support cutting edge Pediatric Cancer Research at New York Medical College, support children and families with cancer and provide community service," said Dr. Mitchell Cairo, M.D.
"This special day will raise both funds for pediatric cancer research and create greater awareness of our mission to eliminate childhood cancer through leading edge research. We are proud to partner with the Red Storm and New York Medical College in this quest," said PCRF Executive Director, Jeri Wilson.
