MCI sponsors events throughout the year that are geared toward creating awareness of the importance of early detection in both cancer prevention and creating better outcomes for those diagnosed with cancer. We also host several annual events in collaboration with various community organizations and businesses to support patient care and advance our research initiatives.
Science on Tap is an informal talk on the science surrounding cancer held bimonthly at some of the coolest venues in Mobile and Gulf Shores. This is a free event, open to the entire community, with food and drinks available for purchase. For more information and upcoming dates, visit the Science on Tap webpage.

GO for gynecologic oncology is an annual 5K and 1-mile fun run held on the main campus of the University of South Alabama. Held each September during gynecologic cancer awareness month, all proceeds from the run benefit the GYN Cancer Research Endowment at the USA Mitchell Cancer Institute.
Held each October during breast cancer awareness month, the Think Pink Tea is a free, community-wide event that celebrates the lives of area breast cancer survivors while providing hope to those currently battling this disease.

The Salty Worm Brackish Classic and Delta Bash is unlike any other event of its kind! The "Brackish Classic" is the world's only fishing tournament that pits saltwater speckled trout fishermen head-to-head with freshwater bass fishermen. This occurrence can only be found in the Mobile-Tensaw Delta during certain periods of time each fall. The Delta Bash, a family-friendly party following the tournament, enables non-fishermen to join the fun. All proceeds from the Salty Worm Brackish Classic benefit the Gaillard Pancreatic Cancer Research Endowment. For more information or to purchase tickets, call 251-460-6209 or visit the Eventbrite page.
Celebrate Hope is the premier fundraising event for the USA Mitchell Cancer Institute. Held the Thursday before Thanksgiving each year, guests enjoy food, wine and craft beer pairings from local and regional chefs and caterers, along with live entertainment. In its six-year history, Celebrate Hope has generated more than $2.5 million to support cancer research. For tickets or more information, call 251-460-6209 or visit the Celebrate Hope webpage.
Hope Grows Here is a farmer's market brunch locally sourced from Baldwin County growers and producers.
