The Sarcoma Stomp
Join us on April 28, 2018 for the 7th annual Sarcoma Stomp 5K Run and 3K Walk benefiting sarcoma research and clinical trials at Levine Cancer Institute and Levine Children’s Hospital in Charlotte, NC! Share a fun and uplifting morning with your family, friends, and co-workers, and help us to raise significant funds for sarcoma clinical trials and other critical research projects! This fundraising event is held at Christ Lutheran Church, 4519 Providence Road, Charlotte, NC.
The Sarcoma Stomp is a favorite family event! Kids love the face painting, tattoos, photo booths, games, snacks and visits from our favorite mascots! In 2017 the event attracted a record 1,200 participants and volunteers (including over 45 teams) and raised over $170,000!
There are LOTS of ways to participate! You can lace up your shoes and take on our scenic neighborhood 5K course, or stroll with your loved ones through the 3K walking course. Or, choose just be part of our Cheering Crew! Want to participate on the course but are physically challenged? No problem! Our friends at Speed for Need will happily push you in a specialized racing chair (see photo below) so that you can participate with your family and friends in either the 5K Run or 3K Walk (chairs are on an as-available basis, so register and reserve a chair early)! The Sarcoma Stomp is a great team event! Register and create teams of any size! Get crazy and creative with costumes, hats, headbands and custom team shirts!
Don’t live in the Charlotte area but still want to support? Register as a Virtual Stomper! Virtual Stompers can start or join any team as well as fundraise for the cause! We had over 70 Virtual Stompers last year from all over the U.S., many of which were friends or family members of local participants. No need to let distance get in the way of fun-raising!
