The Drake Men's Basketball team has rescheduled their inaugural Suit Up Against Pediatric Cancer game for February 26, 2022 when the Bulldogs take on Southern Illinois at 3 p.m. at the Knapp Center. Our hope with this event is not only to bring awareness to Pediatric Cancer but also to provide the families experiencing pediatric cancer with a fun event to enjoy as a family.


Families interested in participating should complete the survey at the register now link below by February 20, 2022. Space is limited so register soon to guarantee your spot. Each family that registers will receive free tickets to the game and an invitation to a special pregame event including a pregame meal and family fun zone. In addition, the child battling cancer will receive a t-shirt and mini basketball and the family will be able to get additional shirts for free at the pregame event. Members of the families will also be able to participate in a special halftime show of Simon Sez.
