TCU Frogs for the Cure is the largest university-based cancer support program in the nation; which was founded 12 years ago to raise awareness and funds, provide education, and support survivors.
Frogs for the Cure engages the entire community.
With more than 500 volunteers across the campus and beyond, Frogs for the Cure is TCU’s response to the fight against cancer. From athletes to survivors, the program provides a way for everyone to give back. Through Frogs for the Cure, TCU athletics created the first ever “pink out” halftime tribute to breast cancer survivors when the program began in 2005.
This year, Frogs for the Cure is expanding the mission to all cancers. “It is perfect timing,” explains TCU senior administrator Ann Louden. “Given TCU’s partnership with the University of North Texas Health Science Center for the medical school and the Moncrief Cancer Institute for research and community engagement, we can make an even greater impact.”
In 2006, when Louden was diagnosed with cancer, her unstoppable energy and broad vision galvanized the program. Through Ann’s leadership and direction as chair, Frogs for the Cure has raised more than $500,000 for Susan G. Komen and created a national stage for TCU’s commitment to community outreach.
Each year, this group harnesses the strength of TCU’s star-power and massive football audience by producing giant music videos to debut during halftime in spectacular fashion. The seventh annual video is now in production!
