Margaret Hardy was determined to see Dr. Dan Blazer get dunked so when she missed on her toss, she did the next best thing: Pushing the red butten to the dunking booth.

Down went Blazer, dropped into a dub of water, all for a good cause. It was part of the Duke-A-Doc fund-raising event at the Duke Cancer Center on May 16.

Eighteen doctors volunteered to get wet to support cancer research and raise awareness about the new DCI Center for Prostate & Urologic Cancers.
