Why we #KeepPoundingTogether
Created by the Carolina Panthers and Atrium Health Foundation in 2004, the Keep Pounding Fund supports cancer research efforts throughout Atrium Health. Since its inception, the Keep Pounding Fund has raised more than $3 million to help support cancer programs at Atrium Health’s Levine Cancer Institute and Levine Children’s Hospital. You can help make life better for a patient who is facing cancer, spread awareness, and contribute to vital research.
Donations to the Keep Pounding 5K (and donations made year-round to the Keep Pounding Fund) are used to fund:
- Clinical research (Phase I and II cancer research trials)
- Patient navigators
- Wellness and survivorship programs, education, and outreach
- State-of-the-art technology and equipment (improving cancer detection and treatment)
