Dribble Drive: Parking is NOT PERMITTED at Vizcaya. We’re excited to be partnering with Vizcaya Museum and Gardens, as a DROP-OFF LOCATION ONLY for the Dribble Drive. This starting point provides the perfect distance for those who might find the 13.1 Dribble Drive Challenge too challenging!

Then, your vehicle will be waiting for you when you finish.  Plan to arrive at Vizcaya for your shirt and basketball pickup at 9 a.m. Or simply take the Metrorail to Vizcaya Station, and walk back or ride-share back to pick up your vehicle from the Metrorail Parking garage.

Yes, bathrooms and water will be available at all starting and ending routes.

 

Is there a time limit for each route?

Each route of the Dribble Drive Against Cancer allows you to dribble at your own pace. But, a good goal is to aim to reach AmericanAirlines Arena by 11:30 a.m. to ensure you can experience every moment of ‘live’ interaction and fun with the Miami HEAT!

The Dribble Drive Against Cancer is primarily a fundraiser for Miami Cancer Institute and is not a race/walk in the traditional sense. We will announce participants at the finish line; however, times are not formally tracked.  Dribble Drive Challengers will have the opportunity to trade in their basketball for a signed “Pineapple” basketball. Dribble Drivers may keep their ball, or may donate it when they reach AmericanAirlines Arena to benefit inner-city youth. 

 

Will my information be shared with anyone?
Your information is safe!  Donor information will not be sold to third parties, but may be used by Team Footworks, HEAT.HELP.CURE., the Dribble Drive Against Cancer, Baptist Health Foundation and/or Miami Cancer Institute for direct communication purposes.

 

Is my entry fee tax-deductible?
Although your support is needed for us to continue the fight against cancer and is very much appreciated, the registration fee is not tax-deductible, as regulations regarding an event where goods and services are provided prohibit tax deductions.

 

Is my donation tax-deductible?

Yes, if you made a donation in addition to, or aside from, registration, the donation is tax-deductible.  Speak with your tax advisor.

 

Is Miami Cancer Institute a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization?

Yes, Miami Cancer institute is part of Baptist Health South Florida, a 501(c) (3) non-profit organization.
