Waxhaw, NC -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/06/2016 -- The Isabella Santos Foundation is a foundation based in Charlotte, North Carolina, for children with cancer. This foundation was started in memory of Isabella Santos, a young girl who battled and succumbed to Neuroblastoma. Her dream is to fight cancer for other children through the funds raised in her memory. She dreamed of a world with "No more cancer." The Isabella Santos Foundation wants to help make that dream come true. They are holding events this September, including the annual 5K/10K race and the annual Fun Run in Charlotte, NC, to raise money for pediatric cancer research and local children's charities.
The Isabella Santos Foundation holds annual fundraising events to fight for Isabella Santos' cause. They believe the best way to celebrate Isabella's life is to bring the community together to raise funds and awareness in the fight against cancer. In the last eight years, over $1,000,000 has been raised by the Isabella Santos Foundation for Neuroblastoma research and local charities. This neuroblastoma Foundation looks forward to fighting this disease while bringing the community together in the process.
Cancer is the leading cause of death among children in the United States. The Isabella Santos Foundation holds annual fundraising events to help stop this disease. Their 9th annual 5K/10K and 1 mile Fun Run for children's cancer will be held on September 24, 2016, in Charlotte, NC.
