COVID-19 Update: to do our part to help flatten the curve, as well as support our healthcare system and community, we are postponing the Signature Event on May 2nd. Given the CDC's recommendation of limiting gatherings for 8 weeks we thought it best to provide as much advance postponement notice as possible. We are grateful to our supporters and friends and look forward to announcing the new 2020 signature event date once confirmed.
Please join us as a sponsor of the 2020 Garding Against Cancer Signature Event!
Cancer often comes with a devastating force that leaves a plethora of destruction in its wake. Most all of us can relate to an experience of struggle, pain, and heartache that we've either taken on ourselves, or been a witness to another’s merciless cancer journey. Through all the struggles and grief, a beacon of hope, light, and a better tomorrow have emerged in the form of amazing support and unrelenting passion exhibited by the thousands who have joined our team. We know that, together, we will continue to take steps forward in this fight, until cancer is a distant memory.
When we began on our Garding Against Cancer journey, in honor and memory of Greg’s father, Glen Gard, who passed away in October of 2015 after a six-month battle with brain cancer, we could have never imagined the outpouring of support for this initiative. Since then, we have successfully raised more than $4 million. At the UW Carbone Cancer Center, these contributions enable researchers to explore promising new ideas, purchase new cancer research technology, and develop better methods of diagnosing, treating, and preventing cancer. Additionally, funds are used to support cancer prevention and patient care initiatives across the state of Wisconsin putting those dollars to work to support those in their personal fight against cancer.
