Over the last 14 years, this event has raised $2.3 Million for pediatric cancer. We want to show the world how much we hate cancer and hope you will join us. Companies like yours have made the Isabella Santos Foundation 5K for Kids Cancer one of the fastest-growing non-profit fundraising family events in Charlotte. In 2019 with 2,500+ participants, 800+ Brunchers, 58 Business Sponsors/Partners, 80+ Race Teams and the determination of the Charlotte community, we have established this event as the best of its kind! The funds raised from this event will fund the Isabella Santos Foundation Rare and Solid Tumor Program. The program oversees care for all solid tumors, rare tumors, MIBG therapy, and all related clinical and scientific research at Levine Children’s Hospital. A program that is the first of its kind in the country. Given our huge social media following (15,000+) and our attendee demographic sponsoring an ISF event is an incredible advertising and brand growth opportunity! Race support comes in all shapes and sizes to work with your sponsorship goals and budget. We encourage you to join us, other national/local corporations, and family businesses at our 2022 event. Help us continue the fight to change the outcomes for kids faced with rare cancers… and have fun doing it!
