For every $5,000 raised (by a registered participant) or contributed directly via online donation, you will have the opportunity to direct your gift to a particular area within our cancer programs and services.
How your donations make a difference in the lives of patients:
All net proceeds from the 5K, as well as year-round contributions made to the Keep Pounding Fund, ensure the availability of Phase I and Phase II clinical research trials, patient navigators, wellness and cancer outreach programs, and leading-edge medical technology and equipment at Levine Cancer Institute and Levine Children’s Hospital. These advancements, made possible by philanthropy, continue to improve treatment options and outcomes for adults and children with a cancer diagnosis. Your support enables both Levine Cancer Institute and Levine Children’s Hospital to offer these vital resources to Charlotte-Area families where they need it most – close to home.
About the Keep Pounding Fund:
Created by the Carolina Panthers and Carolinas HealthCare Foundation in 2003, the Keep Pounding Fund supports cancer research efforts throughout Carolinas HealthCare System. Since its inception, the Keep Pounding Fund has raised more than $2 million to help support cancer programs at Atrium Health’s Levine Cancer Institute and Levine Children’s Hospital. By contributing to the Fund, you can help make life better for a cancer patient, spread awareness, and contribute to vital research.
