The Dude Hates Cancer, a Lebowski-themed fundraising campaign in Philadelphia that culminates in a laid-back bowling tournament, took root back in 2006 with aims of raising lots of money for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. We’re pleased to say it’s been a success! Since its inception, The Dude Hates Cancer has raised over half a million dollars for LLS and is now an official campaign of the organization.
The ethos behind this Philadelphia fundraising campaign is to provide a relaxed, Dude-like outlet for well-intentioned achievers who want to do something about cancer. That’s why we end with a bowling tournament. We can’t imagine The Dude partaking in a long-distance run or attending a fancy soiree to raise money, but he most certainly would bowl. And so that’s what we do. Right here in Philadelphia.
