Philadelphia, PA. Team Draft joined forces with the Sydney Kimmel Cancer Center at Jefferson University to raise awareness & funds for the fight against cancer. The Kimmel Cancer Center NYE’s Taigate took place in McFadden’s at Citizens Bank Park prior to the Philadelphia Eagles last regular season game against the Dallas Cowboys.
PA lung cancer survivor Amy Robertson and, her husband, Wyatt represented Team Draft at the tailgate on Sunday.
**Everyone is welcome to attend. Tickets for the Tailgate are $50 with the net proceeds donated to the Kimmel Cancer Center.
In 2012, we, Team Draft, launched our inaugural Survivor Series 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, leverages our connections with the NFL, its teams and players with our relationships with many of the top cancer centers in the country. As a part of our International Campaign, the games allow us to celebrate our survivors, raise awareness, and give hope to those battling the disease, as well as shine 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 Kimmel Cancer Center, Philadelphia Eagles, NFL and all of our Team Draft supporters for helping make this event possible.
