Fundraising

Whether it be screening tools to assist with an earlier diagnosis, innovative treatment options for those currently facing cancer or a support system for the entire family, the Arizona Diamondbacks Foundation is committed to funding organizations through the D-backs Race Against Cancer that are making a real difference for Arizona's cancer warriors. We are challenging you, D-backs fans, to help us make a positive change in the lives of those impacted by cancer. Whether you can join us on October 15 or not, set a personal fundraising goal in honor or memory of someone who has faced or is currently facing cancer or just because you believe in the cause.

To be considered for incentive gifts, fundraising must be completed by 11:59 PM Arizona time on October 14, 2022. Fundraisers will receive their incentive items within 2 to 4 weeks after the D-backs Race Against Cancer event.
