Description

The signature fundraiser for The Paula Takacs Foundation for Sarcoma Research is the Sarcoma Stomp 5K Run/3K Walk. Monies raised from this fundraiser will stay in our community, benefiting the Paula Takacs Sarcoma Research Fund at the Levine Cancer Institute in Charlotte. This family-friendly event also provides a special opportunity to honor survivors and those lost to sarcoma in our community, and is known for its great spirit and vibe!

The net proceeds of this event will be donated to the Levine Cancer Institute for sarcoma research. Researchers at LCI will be analyzing tissue samples in sarcoma patients across the Levine Cancer Institute network to identify unique biomarkers. The goal is to use this data to develop a clinical trial at LCI for sarcoma patients that will improve the lives and outcomes of these patients. It costs about $1,500 to run a biomarker panel of a sarcoma patient's tumor tissue sample. It costs $300,000-500,000 to execute a clinical trial. With your generosity, both of these critical initiatives are in our sights at the Levine Cancer Institute.

The Paula Takacs Foundation is a 501(c)3 nonprofit.  Any donation made in addition to (or in lieu of) a race registration is 100% tax deductible.  Our Tax ID is 27-3336677.

BE ONE OF THE FIRST 200 REGISTRANTS (1 PER FAMILY PLEASE) AND RECEIVE A FREE GO PLAY SAVE COUPON BOOK! We will email you if you are one of these lucky people; you can pick up your book at either Packet Pickup on April 16 or 17th (TrySports Southpark) or at the April 18th event.

The Sarcoma Stomp will be held this year at Christ Lutheran Church, 4545 Providence Rd., Charlotte, NC.  We thank this house of worship for generously donating their beautiful "backyard" to hold our event, as our previous park site is still closed for construction.

The 5K Run will take participants on a lollipop-shaped course through the beautiful neighborhoods of Mammoth Oaks and Lansdowne, behind Christ Lutheran Church.  Runners will be timed using the latest Chrono-Track chip system that is affixed partcipants' bibs.   Finish times will be accessible via the free Queen City Timing App shortly after the race!

The 3K Walk is perfect for a more casual stroll for young families, for catching up on the latest gossip with your BFF, or showing off your creative team shirts and costumes to our spectators!  It will take participants through a portion of our 5K course in the Mammoth Oaks neighborhood.  

Can't participate in the 5K Run or 3K Walk but would still like to come out and support the event? Register for the Cheering Crew and receive a Sarcoma Stomp event shirt that you can wear while making some noise for the on-course participants! 

5K Run, 3K Walk, and Cheering Crew participants may register as part of a team!  Our last Sarcoma Stomp had over 35 teams, dressed in their own custom-designed shirts, boas, tiaras, halos, and funky socks!  Some teams were supporting sarcoma survivors, while others were groups of co-workers or friends.  We hope that teams of any size will come out to run or walk, take a special team photo, and show their spirit to the crowd!  Teams that raise more than $1,000 will be eligible for a special raffle prize during the awards ceremony.

Kids love the Sarcoma Stomp too!  We have plenty of surprises in store this year!  Sir Purr from 8-9am! Games! Food! Activities! Raffle Prizes!
