Join us for Colorful, an evening of celebration and support of cancer research at the University of Michigan Health Rogel Cancer Center. Proceeds from this fundraiser will support our mission to transform the lives of cancer patients and their families by improving outcomes through research, innovation, and transdisciplinary collaboration. Colorful represents the spectrum of ribbons we wear to raise awareness and honor those whose lives are touched by cancer. This will be a hybrid event, offering in-person and virtual experiences.

This year’s inspiring program will feature former NFL players Devon Still, author and positive psychology practitioner, and Dhani Jones, an entrepreneur, author, and multimedia broadcaster.
