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 inaugural year. These leaders make things happen, not with a ball but with a determination to fight cancer through their next-level generosity.
