In the community
Welcome to the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance (SCCA) events and sponsorship page. SCCA participates in various community events throughout the year that align with our organizational mission and goals.
Seattle Pride Parade
SCCA will be featured in the virtual Seattle Pride Parade, an event that works to celebrate and advocate for the LGBTQ population.
Seattle Swim Across America
Swim Across America, Inc. (SAA) is dedicated to raising money and awareness for cancer research, prevention and treatment through swimming-related events. For 2020 the event is adapting; with the opportunity to log activity points for swimming, hiking, biking, and whatever else you like to do! Find out more information about this year’s virtual Swim Across America Coast to Coast. To date, Swim Across America contributed over $2.5 million for clinical research at SCCA.
Northwest Folklife Festival
The Northwest Folklife Festival is the place to learn, to dance, to play, to try something new and to discover arts and cultures that inspire celebration of one another and our large community. The Northwest Folklife Festival celebrates the global traditions of local, independent artists and SCCA is proud to sponsor the event for three years. Presenting more than 5,000 performers, the festival draws from the more than 100 cultural communities that Northwest Folklife collaborates with year-round. The festival is presented without admission charge, creating the most inclusive, wide reaching arts experience.
Pink Boat Regatta
Every year, sailors and supporters come together for the Pink Boat Regatta dressed in their best pink outfits to be on the water together. This sailing event raises money for the Breast Cancer Research Fund.

Yellow ball project
The SCCA yellow ball project started in March 2017. Since then, we've been inviting people from our community to write the names of loved ones who have been affected by cancer on a yellow ball and drop it into the orb. To date, we have collected more than 2,000 names.
We invite you to help fill the orb by writing the name of a cancer patient who inspires you. Once filled, the orb and the yellow balls will become part of a community art installation.
When in-person events return, look for the yellow ball project at the SCCA booth at events around Seattle.
Thank you for lending your voice, your memories and your inspiration to this project. It is through collaboration that we are Better Together.
