The Isabella Santos Foundation (ISF) is a Charlotte, NC non-profit that was founded in honor of Isabella Santos who was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma at the age of two. Isabella battled the disease for 5 years, but due to the lack of funding for pediatric cancer, she sadly lost her battle at the age of 7. Today, they fight in her honor to save more children and their families from enduring what she did.
Since 2009, ISF has donated over 1.5 million dollars to its mission of raising money and awareness for Neuroblastoma and other rare pediatric cancers. ISF benefits Levine Children’s Hospital in Charlotte, as well as other hospitals who specialize in Neuroblastoma research, and other local organizations that support children with cancer.
The mission of A Child’s Place is to erase the impact of homelessness on children and their education. A Child’s Place’s strategy is to 1) Stabilize children and families at the time of a homeless crisis 2) Connect to and navigate through resources already available in the community 3) Remove barriers (hunger, transportation, physical/emotional health issues)…so that our children and families discover the power of education to improve their lives.
A Child’s Place is the only nonprofit organization in Charlotte focused specifically on the success of children whose families are experiencing homelessness, most often suffering in generational poverty. Our unique, two-generational intervention strategy has two essential components: to resolve the child’s immediate basic needs for food, clothing and shelter while creating an individualized case plan that supports his or her continued focus on education; and to assess, make strategic referrals and support the student’s family through a case plan to resolve issues that led to the homeless crisis.
Charlotte Dance Marathon is part of a national movement on over 300 colleges nationwide, where university students join together to raise financial support and awareness for their local Children’s Miracle Network hospital, in their case, Levine Children’s Hospital. One hundred percent of the funds raised by Charlotte Dance Marathon go directly back to Levine Children’s Hospital where they are used to purchase vital, care-enhancing equipment for the hospital, that caregivers request, yet the hospital’s normal operating budget is unable to fund.
The funds they raise are critical to enhancing the quality of care for all children in the Charlotte region. Together they work to ensure that families can be confident that their child, and for that matter, every child in our community, will have the best care possible when they walk through the doors of Levine Children’s Hospital.

The mission of The DeAngelo Williams Foundation is to develop and seek initiatives that support the eradication of breast cancer through preventative care and research for a cure.
DeAngelo Williams has been a tremendous advocate for breast cancer awareness world-wide. He has been motivated by the effects of breast cancer that has run rampant in his family claiming the lives of his four aunts and in 2014, his own mother. DeAngelo’s work can be attributed to initiating the start of the pink promotion throughout the NFL and partnering with a variety of breast cancer charities to raise money for research. It is his personal mission to ensure recognition of breast cancer all year long and not only during the dedicated month of awareness in October. DeAngelo and The DeAngelo Williams Foundation, together with our community are “gaining yards on breast cancer.”
