Rally Against Cancer Featured Speaker

2021 Speaker - Anthony Rizzo

null

 Anthony Rizzo is the All-Star first baseman for the Chicago Cubs, and at the young age of 31, he is already one of the most decorated players in Cubs' history. Notably, in 2016, he led the Cubs to their first World Series Championship in 108 years! 

After being traded to the Cubs in 2012, he developed into an All-Star player, appearing in the All-Star Game three times, winning the Silver Slugger Award, three Gold Glove Awards, a Platinum Glove Award and the Roberto Clemente Award in 2017. 

Through his philanthropic ventures, Rizzo has also won the Heart and Hustle Award and the Branch Rickey Award. He is considered by many to be one of the most respected players in Major League Baseball. 

In 2008, during his first year in professional baseball, Anthony was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma and underwent six months of chemotherapy at the same time his grandmother was battling breast cancer. Within a few years of remission, he created the Anthony Rizzo Family Foundation. The Foundation has raised millions of dollars in support of cancer research and families with children who are battling cancer. 

We are honored to have Anthony Rizzo join us for this year's Rally and can't wait for him to share his story with all of you.
