Survivors Take the Field!

Just before kick-off, all survivors will be invited to run onto the field with the Temple Football team wearing their color-coded scarves. We will be photographing this event so your participation is critical to making a strong statement about the power of survivorship. Upon entry to the tailgate, survivors and their guests will receive a wristband that will allow them access to the tailgate and the field. Further instructions will also be given at that time. Please allow plenty of time to enter the stadium.


Registration for the tailgate and complimentary tickets is now closed. You are still able to purchase tickets for the game by calling the Temple Ticket Office at 215-204-8499. Ticket prices are as follows: $15 for end-zone, $20 for sideline and $35 for club box. Registered guests will receive their tickets electronically from the Philadelphia Eagles Ticket Office on Monday, October 30, 2017


A limited numbers of spaces are available in parking lot K for $20 plus a processing fee of $5. To purchase a parking place, please click here. The promotional code is FOX. Purchased parking passes will be sent via email by Temple University. Alternate parking options are nearby and can be found here


On-site registration is not available. Fox Chase will be providing free food to all registered survivors and their guests at the tailgate. The menu includes Philly soft pretzels with cheddar cheese/mustard, beef hamburgers and cheeseburgers, veggie burgers, beef hot dogs, Italian sweet and hot sausage with peppers and onions, home-made Jersey tomato salad, bottled water, iced tea and lemonade. The event is BYOB (Bring Your Own Bottle) so alcohol is permitted but Fox Chase Cancer Center will not provide or serve alcoholic beverages. 


All survivors who registered by the October 1 deadline will receive a color-coded scarf to wear onto the field. A scarf and tote bag will be mailed to your home address on October 19.

Lincoln Financial Field Bag Policy: 

If you are planning to bring a bag, we recommend using the tote bag sent along with the scarf as it meets the strict guidelines set by Lincoln Financial Field. Please review the bag policy here.
