Your Dollars at Work

Together we can make a difference!  The St.Vincent Cancer Challenge has raised nearly 2 million dollars to support patients and families facing cancer at St.Vincent.  100% of all funds raised by participants has helped inspire hope by making the following programs and services possible:

- Digital Tomosynthesis: This revolutionary 3D diagnostic imaging technology can detect breast cancer earlier and help save lives. 

- Art Therapy: Thanks to the Cancer Challenge, art therapy is available to those being treated inpatient or in the outpatients setting, as well as survivors. 

- Mobile Screening Van: Funds were used to purchase a second mobile screening van allowing us to double the number of people who have access to free or low cost screenings.

Thank You to our 2017 Sponsors!

Team Captains

Team Captains:
You've got your team and your sneakers ready to go. Now what?  GET YOUR TEAM MOVING!  Below, please find some quick tips to help motivate your team and get everyone excited for the Cancer Challenge!

  • Set a Team Goal. Setting a team goal is the first step to success and helps get everyone rallied around a common purpose. Make sure that everyone on your team knows what the team goal is and how they can contribute to helping achieve it.
  • Send emails to your team. This not only helps you track how your teammates are doing on their fundraising goals but you can also share encouragement, news and plan fundraising events to help your team reach (or exceed) your goal.
  • Gather as a group. Go for training runs/walks, have team fundraising events, or visit Zionsville together and check out some points on the route!  Meeting in person helps everyone stay motivated and gives you a chance to share creative new ideas for raising funds and having fun at the Challenge.
  • Get social. Encourage your teammates to post updates and ask for support on Facebook and other social media sites. Be sure they're sharing statuses and raising awareness of team fundraising activities!
