It is now time to bring this great program to South Charlotte. We will be supporting the Isabella Santos run by setting up a tent to raise awareness and racing with kids in the custom chairs. This is a very worthy cause that support research to cure childhood cancer. You can read about it here https://isabellasantosfoundation.org/about/
This organization was started by Isabella’s parents with the hope that they could raise the money and awareness to save their little girl. While Isabella fought hard relapse after relapse she was not able to beat this disease, but with the help of this organization and our support we can help other children live her dream of a world “With no more cancer.” So sign up with your M’s, 2.0’s and friends.
