This is the 7th annual Isabella Santos Foundation 5K Race For Kids Cancer and 1-Mile Fun Run. We are so excited to also introduce a 10K this year for all you go getters out there! The event will take place in Ballantyne Corporate Park, Saturday, September 20, 2014 and will start at 8am.

We had such an outstanding turnout last year with almost 3,000 participants and we raised over $200,000. Check out our video from last year's truly was something to behold! We are thrilled to partner with the Charlotte Checkers as our presenting sponsor this year! The Charlotte Checkers are our local hockey team and if you haven't been to a game yet, you are truly missing out on a great family experience! We are thrilled to have their support and appreciate their dedication to serving their local community!

The popular Kids Zone and 1-Mile Fun Run will be back and better than ever! There will be food, plenty of kids’ activities and a don't leave right after you cross the finish line!

For this year’s 5k, we want to paint the town PURPLE again! We want to see your craziest, zaniest, most purpilicious gear on race day. Wear everything purple. Purple knee high socks, purple tutus, purple wigs, purple painted faces. If you can dream it up, we want to see it. We want to be jogging along, look up, and see a sea of purple. Show the world that YOU support finding a cure for pediatric cancer and that you are one of Isabella’s Purple Warriors. We can’t wait to see your cute purple selves on race day!

We are overwhelmed by the community support and love each year and hope that you continue to fight the battle against Neuroblastoma with us!


We will have a silent auction and raffle again this year and the donations have already been pouring in! Vacation packages, sporting event tickets, and gift cards, just to name a few!
