racetag_slide_home2015Every September, families come together in Charlotte, NC to raise money for pediatric cancer research and local children’s charities.  What better way to help celebrate Isabella’s life than bringing the community together to raise funds and awareness to make a difference in lives affected by cancer.  And the best part is this race continues to spread wider than Charlotte in its participants and donations.  In the last 8 years the Isabella Santos Foundation 5K for Kids Cancer and 1 Mile Fun Run has raised over 1,000,000 for Neuroblastoma research and local charities near and dear to our hearts.  Last year alone we had  2,000 participants and raised more than $350,000.   Take a look at our race photo galleries to see how much fun we have each and every year! We are excited to see what 2014 brings!
