SALT LAKE CITY –¬†The Utah Jazz are celebrating the fifth anniversary of the 5 For The Fight campaign during tonight’s game against the Philadelphia 76ers.

The anniversary marks the anniversary of the 5 For The Fight jersey patch on the Jazz’s uniforms, which was originally purchased by Qualtrics to help raise money for cancer research.

The initial plan to use the jersey patch space to raise money was for cancer research was supposed to last one season, but after a successful first year, Ryan Smith, the co-founder and CEO of Qualtirics decided to keep the fundraising measure in place.

To date, 5 For The Fight has raised nearly $30 million for cancer research.

During the third quarter of tonight’s game, the Jazz will have five-year-old Tessa Guymon of Highland, Utah, ringing¬†the¬†bell to mark¬†the end of two and a half years of chemotherapy treatment and surgeries to fight¬†leukemia.

Along with her family, Guymon will ring the bell at the first timeout of the third quarter from the porch area at Vivint Arena.

Then, television analyst Thurl Bailey will also engage the sellout crowd at the second timeout of the third quarter with the opportunity to give $5 for the fight against cancer.

Fans will be asked to join the cause by texting JAZZ to 50555 for a $5 donation during the game or by visiting www.5ForTheFight.org.

Additionally, the Utah Jazz Team Store will be featuring a co-branded full zip jacket with the Jazz and 5 For The Fight logos. All proceeds will go to funding cancer research.
