Every dollar raised by participants supports pilot projects and early phase clinical trials aimed to provide insights into cancer prevention, treatment and cures to save lives.

Since 2017, the UCI Anti-Cancer Challenge community has helped raise over $4.7 million, supporting research at the UCI Health Chao Family Comprehensive Cancer Center. In partnership with Children’s Hospital of Orange County (CHOC), a portion of the funds is dedicated to pediatric cancer research.

Starting in May, discover more about the impact of supporting the UCI Anti-Cancer Challenge at our free lead-up events. These events include the first ever UCI Anti-Cancer Challenge kickoff featuring the announcement of newly funded cancer projects, rallies, community virtual sessions, a research reception and lab tour – all open to the public.
