NATURE & PURPOSE OF SERVICE SITE: 

St. John's University 7th Annual Dribble for the Cure harnesses the energy of Men's and Women's collegiate basketball to galvanize local youth and community members in the fight against pediatric cancer. The goal of this event is to raise awareness and dollars to help save the lives of children battling cancer, with proceeds donated to the Pediatric Cancer Research Foundation in support of the Pediatric Cancer Research Laboratory at New York Medical College.Volunteers are crucial to the success of the day, assisting in a variety of aspects throughout the event, as participants of all ages "Dribble for the Cure" on a course winding through the St. John's Queen’s campus and ending at Carnesecca Arena. The event will kick-off with a festival featuring the St. John’s Cheerleaders and band, games and refreshments, and culminate with an opportunity for photos and autographs with the players and coaches.

USD volunteers for this shift (7:30am-9:30am) will assist with event set up outside of Carnesecca Arena.
