On Friday night, September 9, Stand Up To Cancer’s live, one-hour fundraising event will air on most networks, including CBS. It will also be streamed live on, which makes a lot of sense, given that Major League Baseball is the founding donor of Stand Up To Cancer (SU2C).

From the SU2C press release:

As SU2C’s founding donor, Major League Baseball has provided both financial support and countless opportunities to build the Stand Up To Cancer grassroots movement by encouraging fans worldwide to get involved.

Thanks in large part to MLB’s involvement, SU2C has raised over $370 million in support of cancer research and MLB continues to be heavily involved. Many stars take part in ads and run charities to support cancer research and cancer patients. Take Anthony Rizzo of the Cubs (more details here). He joins in with Blue Jays star Josh Donaldson and Red Sox star Mookie Betts in this ad.

For more information and/or to donate to the cause, check out the official SU2C website. Kudos to Major League Baseball for taking part in such a worthy venture.
