Music Beats Cancer Charity and iHeart Radio Reveal Challenge to Raise Funds for Cancer Research and Innovation

Music Beats Cancer, a 501(c)3 charity, launched the #MusicBeatsCancer Challenge on Monday, October 10, 2022, at 9:00 a.m. EST. Participating partnered musicians will compete to raise the most money for cancer-fighting innovations. They will have until Monday, November 7, 2022, at 11:59 p.m. EST to win the Challenge. 

The purpose of the Challenge is to help fund biotech innovators who are working on badly needed solutions for cancer but lack the requisite funds to move forward. Music Beats Cancer’s mission is to increase the number of cancer-fighting technologies in the product-development pipeline so that more solutions make it to those in need. The nonprofit empowers people to support the advancement of new solutions and promising treatments for cancer. Doing so addresses the “Valley of Death,” the severe funding gap that commonly forces cancer researchers to abandon their work. Most of these research projects will fail before they can prove their possibility, not because their science is bad but because they lack the funding to succeed. 

The Challenge offers independent bands and musicians a unique opportunity to align their voices with a worthy cause and reach a broader audience. The top two artists who raise the most (above $1,000 minimum) will get their music video featured on the jumbotron at the iHeart Jingle Ball 2022 at Capital One Arena in Washington, D.C. on December 13, 2022. Featured music videos will be shown between celebrity acts, including Sam Smith, Pitbull, and Charlie Puth. 

“We are honored to have artists participate worldwide in this #MusicBeatsCancer Challenge. Cancer is a world problem. Our partnered artists are helping us impact change in the war on cancer,” says Dr. Mona Jhaveri, founder of Music Beats Cancer.

This contest is operated and owned by Music Beats Cancer and is not an iHeartRadio contest. All rules and regulations of the FCC will be followed. Funds received before or after the competition will NOT be counted towards the Challenge. No donations will be refunded.

All funds raised through the Music Beats Cancer Challenge support the Community Mega Fund, a fund that matches, dollar for dollar, donations made to the cancer-fighting campaigns
