From our official site:
'Dribble For The Cure II' will take place Sunday, Nov. 1 at historic Pauley Pavilion. Once again Ben Howland's UCLA men's basketball team and the Bruin Athletic Department have joined forces with UCLA basketball alumnus John Vallely, the Pediatric Cancer Research Foundation (PCRF) and Mattel Children's Hospital UCLA for the second annual fund-raising event.
Proceeds will be directed to finding a cure for pediatric cancer and supporting the treatment for children with cancer at the Mattel Children's Hospital UCLA. At last year's inaugural 'Dribble For The Cure', more than 500 participants dribbled a basketball across the Bruin campus, raising $75,000 to help find the cure for pediatric cancer.
The event will start and end at Pauley Pavilion, where activities, autographs, booths and entertainment will be featured. Participants will have the opportunity to meet the UCLA men's basketball squad, along with student-athletes from other Bruin athletic teams. Each participant is asked to bring their own basketball and 'Dribble For The Cure' on a course through the UCLA campus.
Team (a minimum of 10) and individual participants will be asked to collect pledges for their 'Dribble' and will become eligible for prizes based on pledge amounts turned in the day of the event. Each participant will also receive an official 'Dribble For The Cure' t-shirt.
As always, it will be awesome if you can blog about it here (allowing rest of us to be with you in spirit).
