Join the Anti-Cancer Challenge

Three years ago, we launched the UCI Anti-Cancer Challenge to inspire our campus and local communities to move UCI one step closer to finding cancer cures.

As the only National Cancer Institute-designated comprehensive cancer center in Orange County, the UCI Chao Family Comprehensive Cancer Center is at the forefront of discovering transformative ways to defeat cancer. We are the county’s leader for many inpatient cancer treatments, including lymphoma, endocrine, musculoskeletal and neurologic, and 23 of our cancer specialists are listed as best doctors by Best Doctors, Inc.

Because of our efforts during our first two challenges, we have funded 28 cancer research projects, each with unique potential for improving the lives of people diagnosed with cancer. We hope you join us for the third UCI Anti-Cancer Challenge in Aldrich Park on June 8, 2019. This is a phenomenal opportunity to be part of this growing community movement to eradicate cancer. You may choose to ride, run, walk, donate or volunteer. Or, you can cheer on colleagues, friends and loved ones.

The UCI Anti-Cancer Challenge is more than an event; it is a message to the world that, together, we can do something to end a disease that touches us all.

Fiat Lux,

Chancellor Howard Gillman
