The D10 Philly 2019 Program Is Here!

W680 phillyprogramcoverpagerev In 2019, The D10 expanded from four cities into multiple new markets across the country. Philadelphia is the first of these new D10 cities; the birthplace of our nation and bubble gum (colored pink quite by happenstance).

Philadelphia has moxie, grit, and most importantly, Philadelphians. Many of our outstanding NYC athletes hail from the Philly-area, now they have a D10 to call their own. This is the first year in Philly; we expect it to be a powerhouse for athletic prowess and pediatric cancer fundraising alike. 

Digital Game Day programs for Philly can be downloaded: HERE.
