UW Marching Band to “Band Together to Beat Cancer”
With the tweet of the drum major’s whistle and the drum beat of its run-on cadence, the University of Wisconsin marching band will take to the field at Camp Randall Oct. 31st to march against cancer.
For the third year, band members are raising awareness for the UW Carbone Cancer Center by wearing special sashes emblazoned with the names of people who have had cancer.
Even though they are young adults, many band members have been touched by cancer. Band members will receive a second sash with the name of one of their loved ones with cancer that they will keep.
In 2012, we, Team Draft, launched our inaugural Survivor at Every Stadium initiative on CNN during a nationally-televised prime time special focusing on lung cancer and our National Campaign to Change the Face of Lung Cancer.
Leveraging our connections with the NFL and the NCAA, its teams and players and our relationships with many of the top cancer centers in the country, As part of our National Campaign, this celebration of survivorship raises lung cancer awareness, gives hope to those battling the disease, and shines a light on the important work being done at cancer research and treatment centers around the country.
Team Draft’s goals are to create a unique experience for participating survivors and to raise awareness on a local, national, and international level by using each game and each survivor’s story to weave a broader narrative about the state of cancer and the hope that now exists for those battling the disease.
Special thanks to the University of Wisconsin, Free to Breathe, Ron Dayne and our Team Draft supporters for helping make this experience possible.
