The Capture team is thrilled to be working with the Starr family on launching the Starr Children's Fund. In conjunction with the Vince Lombardi Cancer Foundation as it expands nationally, this fund is opening doors to help more children fight the battle against cancer, until cures are ultimately found. Capture will help with event management and logistics, marketing and public relations.
Bart Starr’s legacy on the football field is matched by his charitable legacy. After Vince Lombardi passed away from colon cancer in 1970, Bart and Cherry Starr graciously accepted the role of Honorary Chairpersons of the first annual Vince Lombardi Memorial Golf Classic. They tirelessly served as Honorary Chairpersons of the Vince Lombardi Cancer Foundation for 44 years and contributed to raising more than $16 million to help fight cancer.
In 2017, Bart and Cherry Starr introduced the Starr Children's Fund which is dedicated to raising funds to support pediatric cancer research and treatments.
