Sideline Cancer

Together WE CAN

These videos show some 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 $260,000 to support this effort!

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:

Sideline Cancer

The name Sideline Cancer® has been trademarked through the Griffith Family Foundation. Sideline Cancer® events can be hosted by any school, office, or company, with proceeds going to the Griffith Family Foundation and pancreatic research.
