The annual ThinkCure! Weekend at Dodger Stadium begins Friday before the Dodgers’ game against the Reds.

Through ThinkCure!, the Dodgers support City of Hope’s efforts to find new treatments and cures for cancer while encouraging Dodgers fans to support that work as well. To date, ThinkCure! has provided $1.8 million in local cancer research grants, accelerating the search for cures and leveraging that investment into an additional $40 million in research support.

Donations can always be made to ThinkCure! by texting the word “CURE” to 50555 for a $10 donation, or by visiting the ThinkCure! website at

“Every day, 100 Angelenos and their families learn they have cancer,” ThinkCure! executive director Joe Fay said. “The disease affects all of our families, and it’s only with community-wide support for cancer research done locally that we will conquer it. We’re grateful to Dodgers fans for embracing this challenge and becoming part of our hometown team to help wipe out cancer.”
