This videos show just a few of the many events and activities that help us create awareness and raise money to fund a cure for Pancreatic Cancer. So far, we have raised $295,000 to support this effort!

This 14-minute video references Greg Griffith’s legacy of love and the creation of #ICAN Sideline Cancer Youth Initiative.

A review of the monumental events that were achieved through the #ICAN Sideline Cancer Youth Initiative in 2019.


Sideline Cancer® started with a group of seniors
at the Hollidaysburg High School in 2012.

It originally started out as Tackle Cancer, which surrounded a football game night and T-shirt sale campaign. However, at the Penn State Altoona Pancreatic Symposium in 2012, the Griffith Family Foundation was introduced to Jack Andraka, who is the 2012 Intel Science and Engineering Fair Winner, Amateur Cancer Researcher, Education Activist, Medical Entrepreneur, and an Innovator. He suggested a new name that would reflect all school activities and participation.

for sharing, here’s the link to this video:
