ABOUT DRIBBLE AGAINST CANCER

Dribble Against Cancer began in 2015 with a two-part goal of teaching the value of compassion through service, while promoting holistic health through physical activity and nutrition amongst New York City youth.

The 2-day event raises awareness and funds for local organizations.  This year's beneficiaries are:  Friends of Karen, the Children's Brain Tumor Project, and the Big and Little Skills Academy.

The Celebrity Game on day 1, garners celebrities of varying pedigree in order to raise awareness on pediatric cancer and on the importance of holistic health.

Founder Jamael Lynch combines his love for basketball, youth, and service to produce an exciting game featuring four honorees, gold carpet, halftime show, giveaways, and more. Over 400 people attend this annual event each year.

The 1-mile Dribble-a-thon on day 2, consists of youth dribbling basketballs alongside the Brooklyn Bridge, while friends and family dribble in solidarity or hold signs raising awareness on pediatric cancer, the leading cause of death among children, post infancy.

The dribble-a-thon ends at Brooklyn Bridge Park's Pier 2, where youth participate in basketball, yoga, and nutrition workshops led by top instructors of the Big and Little Skills Academy. There is music, healthy, foods, and giveaways, all in efforts to promote holistic health and to raise funds towards awareness, research, treatment, and ultimately a cure for pediatric cancer.
