Ugly Sweaters to Fight Cancer

This December, Stand Up to Cancer, Awkward Family Photos, Rock Your Ugly Christmas Sweater and The Dr. Oz Show want you to get ugly for an important, lifesaving cause. Inspired by the ubiquitous “ugly holiday sweater” trend, the Stand Up to Cancer Ugly Sweater campaign encourages supporters to don their ugly holiday sweaters in solidarity to help raise awareness and critical funds for innovative cancer research. Read on to learn how you can participate.

The campaign runs from December 1 - 31 and supporters can build their own Ugly Sweater profile page at SU2C.org/ugly. Click to the next slides to learn about the two fun (and easy!) ways to participate.
