This year’s ThinkCure! Weekend events included programming on the Dodgers’ broadcast partner stations throughout the weekend, celebrity involvement, in-stadium auctions, stories from cancer patients, survivors and their families, in-stadium recognitions and the ThinkCure! logo was painted on the field.
