2017 Isabella's Dream Team

Tuesday, January 10, 2017


The 2017 Isabella's Dream Team is ready to get going again! After conquering many miles and many milestones over the past three years - we are Crushing Cancer again this year for your choice of two races. This team will be training in memory of Isabella Santos, who passed away from Neuroblastoma at the age of 7. We will train as one group starting in mid-July and then you can pick which race(s) would work best for you and your schedule!  The idea is to give you a choice- but also to help us stay in line with each other and our training schedule. Of course...along the training path- this determined group of runners will crush The Isabella Santos Foundation 10th Annual 5k/10K for Kids Cancer on Saturday, Sept 30th. The Dream Team tackled these races last year and raised over $165,000! Lets crush the pavement, crush our fundraising goal and crush cancer together again in 2016!

Isabella’s Dream Team is an endurance running program that raises money for The Isabella Santos Foundation (ISF), while training for half and full marathons.  ISF is a local Charlotte non-profit charity that raises money for Neuroblastoma research, as well as, supporting our community.  We simply ask each participant commit to fundraising at least $500, but our hope is that each person will fundraise much more than that.  


We provide:

  • Coach

  • Training plans (half, marathon & marathon relay)

  • Weekend long runs; weekday run options

  • Team swag

  • Socials

  • Camaraderie

  • Motivation

This is a volunteer based grassroots effort without the overhead of the large cancer charities.

Please email our coach: tom@isabellasantosfoundation.com for more information


We will be training for:

1. Isabella Santos Foundation 10K - Sept 30, 2017

2. Rock 'n' Roll Savannah (1/2, 1/2 Relay or Full) Nov 4, 2017

3. Charlotte Marathon (1/2, Full, or Full Relay) Nov 11, 2017


We cannot wait to join together once again to see what impact we can make this year on each other and on this terrible disease as we crush cancer together! Cancer messed with the wrong city, the wrong running group and especially the wrong kid! Let's do this!
