Guest Speaker: Former Carolina Panthers NFL linebacker, Chris Draft – The White Ribbon Project (TWRP) Board Member, Founder of The Chris Draft Family Foundation, Co-Founder of Team Draft

  • The White Ribbon Project is an international grassroots movement representing all who are committed to changing the perception about lung cancer.
  • Team Draft is an initiative of the Chris Draft Family Foundation created by former NFL linebacker Chris Draft and his late wife Keasha during her year-long struggle with Stage IV Lung Cancer. 

An evening of painting and signing Lung Cancer Awareness wooden ribbons handcrafted by cancer survivors:

Students and health care partners will learn about Team Draft’s dedication to raising lung cancer awareness and increasing research funding by stopping the misconception that lung cancer is a “smoker’s disease.”

Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
