Kohl Center

Become a Garding Against Cancer sponsor to help fund cancer research at the UW Carbone Cancer Center and patient care across Wisconsin. You or your company will also reach a wide audience of basketball fans, community leaders, and others who, like you, are committed to the fight against cancer. All money raised will remain in Wisconsin — working to find a cure, advance treatment options, and promote the welfare of patients.

Join the exclusive POINT GARD sponsorship program

In basketball, point guards are among the most important players on the court. They’re leaders. They make things happen. They help direct the entire team. The same goes for those who proudly make up the Point Gards in the Garding Against Cancer (GAC) campaign. Founding Point Gards are donors who contributed a minimum of $50,000 to Garding Against Cancer during the inagural year. These leaders make things happen, not with a ball but with a determination to fight cancer through their next-level generosity.
