A Powerful History of Building Hope
The Hopebuilders 5K was founded 26 years ago by two local families whose children – both battling cancer – had to seek medical care outside of Charlotte. Although they sadly lost their fight to the terrible disease, their families joined forces to impact the lives of other families. Since that time, the Hopebuilders 5K has become the flagship community fundraising event for Levine Children’s Hospital, bringing together more than 1,000 runners, donors, sponsors, and advocates annually to support pediatric patient initiatives.
The Hopebuilders 5K exclusively benefits the areas of greatest need at Atrium Health Levine Children’s, allowing children and families in our region to receive the best care where they need it most – close to home. Since its establishment, the Hopebuilders 5K has raised nearly $3 million for patient programs at Levine Children’s Hospital.
