Touchdowns Against Cancer is a national program created in partnership between MaxPreps, PLEDGE IT and St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
Touchdowns Against Cancer:
In support of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, this one-of-its-kind high school football program aims to unify teams across the country for a common cause: defeating childhood cancer.
Varsity high school football teams and their communities can participate in Touchdowns Against Cancer by pledging a donation for every touchdown their team scores this September. Teams will compete to see whose touchdowns raise the most in the fight against childhood cancer!
How does Touchdowns Against Cancer work?
Touchdowns Against Cancer empowers high school football teams to raise money to fight childhood cancer, by simply playing the game! Varsity teams can participate in three easy steps:
- Coaches and/or a fan can sign up as a “Captain” to manage the team’s campaign on touchdownsagainstcancer.com.
- Coaches, players and fans share the team's page with their community, asking everyone to pledge a donation for every touchdown the team scores the entire month of September.
- Fans pledge online via the team page, teams score TDs and money is raised for St. Jude!
How do I enter my team's touchdowns scored to our campaign?
Coaches must enter their game stats to their MaxPreps team page. The number of touchdowns scored will be automatically populated to your team's PLEDGE IT campaign once you enter your stats on MaxPreps.
Timeline for Touchdowns Against Cancer:
While pledges can be collected any time after your campaign is launched, the recommended time to start promoting your campaign to your community is September 1st (two week before the program's first game). Games played during the month of September will count toward your Touchdowns Against Cancer campaign total.
Types of Donations:
You have two donations options. You have the option to make either a performance pledge based on touchdowns scored or a one-time flat donation.
