Miami Dolphins Host Annual Cancer Challenge

Saturday, thousands of Floridians are participating in the fight against cancer during this year’s 9th Annual Dolphins Cancer Challenge.

The DCC is a tri-county charity cycling event featuring several different bike routes ranging from a 14-mile ride to the 100-mile trek, with all cyclists crossing the finish line at Hard Rock Stadium.

A 5K Run/Walk will also be featured at this year’s event.

All of the money raised in the DCC goes to innovative research at the University of Miami’s Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center.

The Dolphins Cancer Challenge was launched in 2010 to honor Jim ‘Mad Dog’ Mandich who was battling bile duct cancer.

Friday evening, the Miami Dolphins hosted their annual Friday Night Kick-Off Party at Hard Rock Stadium where executives, players, and alumni mixed with participants as they geared up for the event.

The DCC has raised more than $27.5 million since 2010.
