Pool

The annual event has raised over $376,000 to help fight children's cancer over its four year history.

UCLA basketball will host the fifth annual "Dribble For The Cure" event on campus on Sunday, Oct. 21. The annual fundraiser is a joint effort between UCLA Athletics, the Pediatric Cancer Research Foundation and the Cancer Research Program at Mattel Children's Hospital UCLA.

Last year's event set records for participation and fundraising, as nearly 900 participants dribbled basketballs through a 1.2 mile course across the Bruins' campus to raise over $115,000 in donations. In four years, the annual event has had almost 3,000 participants and raised over $376,000 to help fight children's cancer.

This year's "Dribble For The Cure" is scheduled to begin at 8:30 a.m. PT with registration at UCLA's Drake Stadium. There will be activity booths and entertainment as a part of a welcome ceremony at 10 a.m. PT, and the event will officially begin at 10:15 a.m. PT.

The event finishes at the John Wooden Center (Collins Court), where participants can meet for autographs and pictures with members of the UCLA men's and women's basketball teams, as well as other Bruins student-athletes.
