Columbia Athletics will be hosting our first ever CHILDREN’S CANCER AWARENESS GAME on Saturday, November 9 at Lawrence A. Wien Stadium at the Baker Athletics Complex when our football team hosts Harvard at 12:30pm.

The Hope & Heroes Children’s Cancer Fund provides philanthropic assistance to the Division of Pediatric Hematology, Oncology and Stem Cell Transplantation at Columbia University Medical Center.  The fund’s mission is to support and expand existing programs and therapies at the Center, develop new initiatives and enhance the research that is vital to continuing the fight against pediatric cancer and blood disorders.  Fans are encouraged to learn more about the Hope & Heroes Children’s Cancer Fund at http://www.hopeandheroes.org!

For this special Ivy League Football contest, donations will be collected at the game and given to the Hope & Heroes Children's Cancer Fund for children’s cancer treatment. Columbia Football is proud to welcome patients and their families to be recognized at the game!

Tickets are only $10 each and may be purchased in advance online by clicking here or by stopping by the Athletics Ticket Office in the Dodge Fitness Center.  Tickets will also be available at the stadium on game day. 

The first 500 fans will receive a gold wristband commemorating this special day.
