Colorful Cancer Event

Colorful banner


On June 3, 2021, we gathered virtually to celebrate community and progress across all cancer research with an evening of tribute and life-changing philanthropy benefiting the University of Michigan Health Rogel Cancer Center. The center’s mission is to transform the lives of cancer patients and their families by improving cancer outcomes through research, innovation, and transdisciplinary collaboration.

Thanks to our generous sponsors and donors, we raised over $138,000 to fuel our mission, and gifts are still coming in! If you’d like to contribute, there’s still time to make a donation.


If you were unable to attend or would like to view the event again, a recording can be accessed below.


The event name “Colorful” represents the spectrum of cancer awareness ribbons and is anchored to National Cancer Survivors Day. Our program featured special guest Robin Roberts, co-anchor of “Good Morning America” and a two-time cancer survivor, and emcee Adam Schefter, ESPN NFL insider and a University of Michigan alum.
