In the midst of the 2020-21 Covid-19 Global Pandemic, Sideline Cancer faced a unique challenge. With the sports world on pause, the organization made a courageous pivot, turning its focus towards Pancreatic Cancer Awareness and Patient Assistance. This decision marked the beginning of a remarkable journey that would touch the lives of many battling cancer.
The purpose was clear: inspire communities to raise funds through Sideline Cancer Merchandise Sales, with a significant portion directed towards supporting cancer patients facing financial hardships. For every item sold, $5 was earmarked for this cause, including $1 from the sale of each bracelet. This simple yet powerful initiative would soon lead to extraordinary results.
Two years have passed since the program’s inception in January 2022, and the impact has been profound. Together with the communities that host events, Sideline Cancer has raised an astounding $105,000, supporting over 30 patients across Central PA and beyond. These funds have provided crucial assistance to those in need, offering hope and relief during their toughest battles.
The journey doesn’t end here. Sideline Cancer’s reach continues to expand, with events now hosted at over 20 schools and more communities joining the cause. The spirit of resilience and compassion embodied by these communities is a testament to the belief that drives Sideline Cancer: the “I Can Attitude & Believe Always Spirit.”
If your school community shares this spirit and is interested in joining Sideline Cancer’s mission, please reach out to Jordan Griffith at [email protected]. Together, we can make a difference, one donation, one event, and one patient at a time. Join us in the fight against cancer, and let’s continue to spread hope and support to those who need it most.
