Leading up to and on the night of the telecast, Stand Up To Cancer is encouraging its supporters to share the reasons they have been moved to join in the fight against cancer by sharing photos and videos on social media with the hashtag #reasons2standup

Bradley Cooper, Academy Award-nominated actor and founder of the Bradley Charles Cooper Foundation, will executive-produce the broadcast alongside renowned live event producers Done + Dusted, in collaboration with Stand Up To Cancer's production team. Stand Up To Cancer (SU2C) is a program of the Entertainment Industry Foundation (EIF).

"It's truly inspiring to see so many people come together for this cause," says Katie Couric, Co-Founder of SU2C and Yahoo! Global News Anchor. "We have a great show lined up this year and are grateful to the amazing individuals taking time out of their schedules to participate. It will be a fantastic opportunity for people to learn about some of the incredible new breakthroughs in cancer research and treatment that are giving real hope to many patients and their loved ones."

To date, more than $370 million has been pledged to support SU2C's innovative model of collaborative cancer research. Since launching in 2008, Stand Up To Cancer has brought together more than 1,200 of the best and the brightest research scientists from 144 leading institutions in seven countries to fund 19 "Dream Teams," and six translational research teams; as well as 36 early-career, innovative scientists carrying out high-risk, potentially high-reward projects. The research is aimed at ending cancer's reign as a leading cause of death worldwide. SU2C-funded researchers have planned, launched or completed more than 160 clinical trials involving more than 9,000 patients. Work by SU2C-supported researchers has led to FDA approval of two treatments.

The American Association for Cancer Research (AACR), the world's first and largest professional organization dedicated to advancing cancer research, is the official Scientific Partner of Stand Up To Cancer. In the United States, AACR is responsible for administering the grants and providing scientific oversight in conjunction with the SU2C Scientific Advisory Committee (SAC).

As SU2C's founding donor, Major League Baseball has provided both financial support and countless opportunities to build the Stand Up To Cancer grassroots movement by encouraging fans worldwide to get involved. In addition to MLB, SU2C's "Visionary" donors include Bristol-Myers Squibb Company; Cancer Treatment Centers of America; Genentech, a member of the Roche Group; MasterCard; and The Sidney Kimmel Foundation. Major donors and collaborators include American Airlines, American Cancer Society, CVS Health, Fifth Third Bank, The Lustgarten Foundation for Pancreatic Cancer Research, Merck and Rally Health. Other key supporters and collaborators include Cancer Research Institute, Cancer Research UK, Dutch Cancer Society, Farrah Fawcett Foundation, The Laura Ziskin Family Trust, Lilly Oncology, Melanoma Research Alliance, National Ovarian Cancer Coalition, Ovarian Cancer Research Fund Alliance, The Parker Foundation, Prostate Cancer Foundation, St. Baldrick's Foundation and Van Andel Research Institute.

Collaborators providing multi-year support for SU2C Canada research through the inaugural Stand Up To Cancer Canada Initiative include: Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation (CBCF), with support from CIBC; Canadian Institutes of Health Research; Cancer Stem Cell Consortium; Genome Canada; and the Ontario Institute for Cancer Research. AstraZeneca Canada and MasterCard are the first corporate supporters of SU2C Canada.
