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.
Our Survivor at Every Stadium initiative, leverages our connections with the NFL, 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.
We kicked off our 2nd Lung Cancer Survivors Super Bowl Challenge on December 2nd, 2015. The Challenge builds off the success of our established Survivor Series by using the games at the heart of that initiative to create buzz for supporting our lung cancer survivors.
