The money raised helps continue the American Cancer Society’s mission to eliminate cancer by funding groundbreaking research and supporting cancer patients by providing free information, resources, programs, and services. Over the past 38 years and counting, the American Cancer Society has funded more than $6 million in research grants to researchers working at Texas A&M University.
