Polyglass U.S.A., Inc. announced today that it is a funding partner of the 2017 Dolphins Cancer Challenge (DCC), the Miami Dolphins’ signature health initiative. The $50,000 sponsorship represents part of Polyglass’ commitment to this charity, along with its team of employees who will raise funds and participate in the DCC event scheduled for February 11, 2017.
“Everyone has been touched by cancer in some way and the Polyglass organization wants to help find a cure,” said Director of Strategic Marketing, Scott Lelling. “The money raised at the DCC has made a difference in the lives of many people affected by cancer and Polyglass is proud to be a funding partner of this worthy initiative for the second year.”
Since founded by the Miami Dolphins organization in 2010, the DCC has raised $16.5 million to further cancer research at the University of Miami, Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center. One hundred percent of the participant-raised funds has been used by Sylvester to make life-changing discoveries leading to more individualized treatments, better outcomes and more hope for cancer patients. The allocation of the donations include translational research, clinical trials, pediatric oncology treatment, breast cancer research, genitourinary cancer research and radiation oncology research.
At the DCC event in February, Polyglass employees will join other bikers, runners and walkers in a race to beat cancer. All participants will end their race at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Fla. The event closes with a concert at the finish line. DCC has announced that multiplatinum musicians Counting Crows will headline the 2017 DCC Finish Line Celebration. The DCC has also incorporated the hashtag #CancerFighters as part of its campaign.
