The Andy North and Friends team creates experiences where we can all join together and collectively make a large impact. We started with a small group of friends getting together, doing something fun and raising money. Today, we have over 7,000 people who have joined us for an event and made a gift to the Andy North and Friends Cancer Fund at the UW Health |Carbone Cancer Center.
Gifts are used at the discretion of the Carbone Cancer Center to support much needed research initiatives. Many grants and gifts to Carbone are restricted and only partially fund projects happening to make life saving research possible. The Andy North and Friends Cancer Fund provides unrestricted dollars allowing cancer center leadership to fund groundbreaking research in various stages and advance progress of crucial, innovative work.
Andy North and Friends are thrilled to host this Madison event in October and to share the impact, innovation and research that is happening at the Carbone Cancer Center. The event will feature an impactful program and an opportunity to support the amazing super star researchers right here in Madison.
In addition to Andy North, two-time U.S. Open Champion and ESPN Golf Analyst, and Dr. Howard Bailey, Director of the University of Wisconsin Carbone Cancer Center, we are excited to announce that we have an additional special guest, Tom Rinaldi. Tom, long time sports reporter for ESPN, is currently a reporter with Fox Sports. He has covered many of the biggest events in sports, including Wimbledon, the Olympics, NBA playoffs, the Super Bowl, the World Series, the Final Four, College Football Playoff National Championship as well as the Preakness and Belmont Stakes. Rinaldi is also a New York Times bestselling author of “The Red Bandana: A Life, A Choice, A Legacy”.
