John Isner Launches Fundraising Campaign With Give2Gain To Support The UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center
PROCEEDS WILL HELP SUPPORT NATIONALLY-RECOGNIZED CANCER CENTER RESPONSIBLE FOR SUCCESSFULLY TREATING ISNER’S MOTHER IN HER BATTLE WITH CANCER
CAMPAIGN FEATURES PRIZES INCLUDING INCREDIBLE LIVE WIMBLEDON EXPERIENCE
WINSTON-SALEM,– On the heels of the biggest victory in his illustrious 11-year professional career, winning his first ATP Masters 1000 title, John Isner(Page High School) is not only gearing up for Davis Cup and the rigorous clay court season, but something that hits a little closer to home.
Today, the top-ranked American tennis star and world No. 9 singles player has teamed up with Give2Gain, a sports and entertainment-focused online giving platform, to launch a global fundraising campaign to support his charity, The UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center. The 70-day campaign kicks off today – April 1, 2018 – and will help raise funds and awareness for the only public comprehensive cancer center serving the state of North Carolina by raffling off a once-in-a-lifetime trip to Wimbledon. The center is very important to Isner as it is where his mother, Karen, was treated successfully in her battle with colon cancer. The campaign concludes on June 10, 2018, at which time a grand prize winner will be randomly chosen from the entries to join Isner in London, England for this year’s 2018 Championships, Wimbledon.
“I want to invite you all to donate to win a trip to join me in London and support a very personal cause,” said Isner. “Please join me in supporting UNC Lineberger by making a donation. The doctors at UNC Lineberger saved my mother’s life, and they’ve saved countless other lives as well. My family is forever in debt to UNC Lineberger.”
UNC Lineberger is one of only 49 National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Centers and was rated as exceptional – the highest category – following its most recent NCI review. The center brings together some of the most exceptional physicians and scientists in the country to focus on advancing the prevention, early detection, and treatment of cancer.
Through the Give2Gain platform, fans will be helping Isner’s charitable efforts for as little as a $10 donation while also receiving entries to win the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to bring a friend to get flown to London for the ultimate tennis trip for two. Donors can also purchase items such as FILA match shirts, Prince tennis rackets, and Isner action pictures. The bigger the donation, the more chances you have to win the grand prize.
One grand prize winner will receive two-round trip tickets to London to meet John Isner, stay for 3 nights in a 4-star Hotel, sit on Centre Court, receive special access to the most prestigious grass court event of the year, and more.
Proceeds from the campaign will benefit UNC Lineberger.
