Our Cause

FACT: 1 in 3 people will get cancer in their lifetime. Will it be you, a friend, or a loved one? Maybe not, if we battle cancer together. 

PvC is a program benefitting the AACR, and we need your help in the fight against cancer. The AACR’s scientists work in labs, fighting back against all of the more than 200 diseases called cancer. We raise money to fund the best cancer research in the world, with a goal of ending cancer, once and for all. 

Join us in our mission. Play to end cancer!


Everybody loves swag! To thank you for your support, we have new swag items for fundraisers in 2021. Items and associated fundraising goals include:
