What if your collegiate pride could not only be used to cheer on your team this September but also help to eradicate childhood cancer?

September is childhood cancer awareness month, and Qualtrics is seeking to raise a $25,000 grant to childhood cancer research to support the innovative work of Dr. Joshua Schiffman at Huntsman Cancer Institute. Dr. Schiffman’s work seeks to apply the cancer-fighting proteins in elephants to humans with cancer. Dr. Schiffman is himself a cancer survivor, being diagnosed at age 15 by his father. He is incredibly motivated to fight cancer because he treats children with cancer.

To raise money, Qualtrics is going ALL IN on college pride! Qualtrics employees represent over 215 of the best universities in the country. Whose team will win the fight? That’s up to you to decide. We are holding a touchdown pledge drive for #5ForTheFight (kicking off on #CollegeColorsDay) for the month of September. Qualtricians and their networks can show school pride by making a pledge!

The winning team’s school flag will fly over Qualtrics’ HQ for the month of October. Visit the program FAQ for more information about how it works.

Find your team on our PledgeIt home page and make your pledge today! Let’s join together toward one common goal and know that when you are cheering for a touchdown this football season you are also cheering to eradicate childhood cancer!
