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:
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 (and counting) to help support cancer programs at Carolinas HealthCare System's Levine Cancer Institute and Levine Children’s Hospital. You can help make life better for a cancer patient, spread awareness, and contribute to vital research.
Funding raised through the annual Keep Pounding 5K helps fund patient navigators, wellness outreach programs, clinical research, and provides for the latest technologies, equipment and treatments options to fight cancer. Your support enables both Levine Cancer Institute and Levine Children’s Hospital to be able to offer new Phase I and Phase II clinical trials. Thanks to these clinical trials, families have access to the most advanced treatments available where it matters most close to home.
