MIAMI – For the 13th year in a row, thousands of South Floridians will take to the streets Saturday for the annual Dolphins Challenge Cancer fundraising event.

Event organizers expect over 4,300 participants to be at Hard Rock Stadium (Lot 18) at 347 Don Shula Dr., in Miami Gardens.

“With participation options including cycling routes and a 5k run or walk, the DCC unites the community with 100 percent of participant-raised funds going towards life-saving cancer research at the Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center,” according to a news release.

“Following a $75M commitment made to Sylvester in 2020, the DCC to date has contributed more than $53M,” a Miami Dolphins spokesperson told Local 10 News.

The Dolphins Challenge Cancer includes four cycling events and a 5k and even though in-person registration is closed, you can still participate virtually.
