Patients, athletes, celebrities, and even an Earthbound Stormtrooper joined the fight against childhood cancers with their participation in the Block Out Cancer effort. The awareness and fundraising campaign at U-M supports pediatric cancer research every September. Among those who showed their support on Instagram were the “Wolverines Trooper” and U-M therapy dog Denver; the Michigan women’s basketball team, led by coach Kim Barnes Arico; U-M alumnus David Burtka, a chef and actor, and his and husband Neil Patrick Harris’s twins, Harper and Gideon; and Jim Harbaugh, Michigan football coach, with patient Vara Gordon and her mom, Emily Gordon, a U-M alumna.
