The Sarcoma Stomp
Join us on April 28, 2018 for the 7th annual Sarcoma Stomp 5K Run and 3K Walk benefiting the sarcoma research program at Levine Cancer Institute! 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! Lace up your shoes and take on our scenic neighborhood 5K course, or stroll with your loved ones through the 3K walking course. Out of town (or local and want to sleep in on Saturday) but still want to support and get a shirt? We’ve got just the thing! Register as a Virtual Stomper! Virtual Stompers can start or join any team as well as fundraise for the cause!
The Sarcoma Stomp is a favorite family-friend event in Charlotte. Kids love the face painting, balloon twisting, tattoos, photo booths, games 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!
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!
