Children Under 5 - Free
Adult Pass - $5.00

The date and setting of this new fall collegiate event is significant to the organization, as it will be on what would have been HEADstrong Founder Nicholas "HEAD" Colleluori's 28th birthday and will be played in the shadows of the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, where he fought his heroic battle against non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma.

The UCC is a day a philanthropy pairing the elements of a Fall collegiate scrimmage with a day of service. Emphasis will be placed on providing an outlet for patients and their families while raising funds to support HEADstrong's research effort.

HEADstrong will provide complimentary admission to patients and families receiving care at the both the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania and Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. After the event HEADstrong will serve dinner to the patients, families and staff at the Rhoads Pavilion at HUP and on the Hematology Oncology floors at CHOP.
