The MVP Sports Draft is a free program offered by Cancer Fit, Inc. as part of our organizational objective of cancer survivor active lifestyle promotion.
The purpose of this program is to match childhood cancer survivors residing in Southern California with a high school or college sports team for a season. Participants in the MVP Sports Draft may come from a variety of backgrounds however they all share the fact that they are battling or have recently battled cancer.
Who – Eligible participants in the MVP Sports Draft program are childhood cancer survivor’s between the ages of 8 & 18 who are within 5 years from completion of treatment.
Where – Currently this program is only open to residents of Southern California living between Santa Barbara and San Diego. Once we receive a request for team placement our team will search for a high school or college athletic team in their local area.
When – The MVP Sports Draft Program is open for enrollment throughout the year however, participants will be matched with a team for an upcoming sport season not for one that is currently in progress. As such, the best time to apply is during Summer or late Fall to provide adequate time for the matching process.
Cost – There is no required cost for participation by either the child’s family or the athletic team. Funding from grants and private donations have allowed Cancer Fit, Inc. to cover 100% of the cost required to run this special program.
