This is the second year that we’ve been lucky enough to work with the Isabella Santos Foundation, a non-profit fighting neuroblastoma. As in previous years, we were able to use Clean Graffiti to help promote their 9th annual 5K/10K for Kids Cancer on September 24, 2016 and push people to #BeatGrowLive.
Our Clean Graffiti went down throughout popular running areas in Charlotte, NC. Having an opportunity to work alongside this passionate and inspiring group has been amazing. Even better is we were able to take Isabella’s words, #BeatGrowLive, and translate them into Clean Graffiti artwork.
Isabella Santos fought a tough battle with neuroblastoma during her short years on this earth. She & her family had to navigate a foreign territory (cancer) that no family should have to travel. While her time was cut way too short, she left a legacy behind. You see, she had three wishes for her life: beat cancer, grow hair and live her dreams. The Isabella Santos Foundation exists so that other children and their families will one day not have to deal with this awful childhood cancer. They are fighting to #BeatGrowLive.
What: 9th Annual Isabella Santos Foundation 5K for Kids Cancer, 10K and 1 Mile Fun Run. This is the fastest growing family-friendly race in Charlotte providing fun for the entire family. Race participants will receive a t-shirt, official racing bib with microchip timing system, and sponsor goodie bag. Prizes will be given to the winners for specific age categories.

This race is not like your typical 5K in the Charlotte, NC area. The ISF event is geared toward families and kids with activities like a Kids Fun Zone (with games, face painting, slides, jump house, photo booth and more) and a Raffle and Silent Auction (with beauty/spa packages, sporting events, date night outs, vacations, jewelry, etc).
There are a lot of ways that you can get involved to #BeatGrowLive. Here are a few suggestions:
- Join Isabella’s Dream Team.
- Host a donation class at your studio, event space, etc.
- Sign up for the 9th Annual 5K / 10K for Kids Cancer on 9/24/16.
