The April 28th Sarcoma Stomp Run/Walk is the signature fundraiser of The Paula Takacs Foundation for Sarcoma Research, held in Charlotte since 2011. This family-friendly road race and walk event is one of the best in town, known for its great vibe and uplifting spirit! Adults and kids love our scenic, safe neighborhood course and our extensive event site festivities. We've gone beyond the tasty bananas (compliments of Fresh Market in Strawberry Hill!) and lassoed some delicious, freshly baked breakfast treats and refreshing smoothie samples from our sponsors Great Harvest Bread Company and Smoothie King! Yum! In addition to great food and drink, participants enjoy great music, face painting, tattoos, team mascots, photo booths, corn hole and other fun activities at the sponsor tents!
Those impacted by sarcoma will love participating with their family and friends, and at the same time, feel the comfort of standing in unity with other sarcoma families. Participants and teams return year after year! We had 48 teams last year! NEW THIS YEAR: DESIGN AND ORDER CUSTOM TEAM SHIRTS!
Help us reach the $1 MILLION mark in sarcoma research funding by participating, donating, fundraising, and volunteering for the Sarcoma Stomp! Monies raised from this fundraiser stay LOCAL, benefiting Levine Cancer Institute and Levine Children's Hospital's clinical trials and other sarcoma research projects. This directly impacts the lives of local patients, while advancing the science of this complex and severely underfunded cancer. To get more information about the current research projects we are funding, please click here.

5K Run, 3K Walk, Cheering Crew and Virtual participants may register as part of any team! Our last Sarcoma Stomp had 48 teams, dressed in their own custom-designed shirts, tiaras, tutus, and funky socks! Some teams were supporting sarcoma survivors, some where remembering loved ones, while others were groups of co-workers or friends. We love teams of all size!
