The 2018 show is especially significant for SU2C, as it commemorates 10 years of raising awareness and funds for innovative cancer research that is helping save lives now. To date, more than $480 million has been pledged in support of SU2C’s innovative cancer research programs. The organization has brought together more than 1,500 of the best scientists from over 180 leading institutions with an emphasis on collaborative, multidisciplinary teams that deliver new therapies and treatments to cancer patients.

As SU2C’s founding donor, Major League Baseball has continued to annually provide both financial support and countless opportunities to build the Stand Up To Cancer movement by encouraging fans worldwide to get involved, most notably through its two largest global events – the MLB All-Star Game and the World Series. In addition to MLB, SU2C’s supporters and donors are many and can be viewed here.
