St. Louis Rams Launch "Text to Donate" Campaign for Cancer Research at Siteman

September 9, 2011

A new partnership between the Siteman Cancer Center at Barnes-Jewish Hospital and Washington University School of Medicine and the St. Louis Rams will allow fans at the Edward Jones Dome to fight cancer – from their seats at the game!

For the 2011 season, Siteman Cancer Center will be the recipient of new a season long “Text to Donate” program. During home games, Rams fans will have the opportunity to text “Siteman” to a special number, and a $5.00 donation will be made to cancer research at Siteman through The Foundation for Barnes-Jewish Hospital.

Those who donate will also be entered to win one of eight prizes:

-Game ball used during October 2 Breast Cancer Awareness game (with pink ribbon).
-Signed jersey from a Rams star player.
-Signed helmet from a Rams star player.
-VIP ticket package including pre-game field passes and lower level sideline seats.
-Suite tickets including food & beverages.
-Meet and greet with a Rams player.
-Opportunity to stand on the field as the Rams players enter during team introductions.
-First Pass of the Game.

Funds raised from the “Text to Donate” program will go to The Foundation for Barnes-Jewish Hospital’s Cancer Frontier Fund, a 10-year, $50 million initiative to support innovative research projects at Siteman Cancer Center. The goal is to speed up the pace of turning discoveries into new tests, imaging technologies, drugs, vaccines and other therapies to help every patient survive his or her cancer; or to stop cancer before it starts.

The campaign starts this Sunday, which looks to be a great game – so limber up those thumbs and get ready to text!
