2020 Keep Pounding 5K


Rodgers is proud to support Atrium Health Foundation and The Carolina Panthers as a lead sponsor of the 2020 Keep Pounding 5K. Over the race’s 10-year history, the annual event has raised over $3 million to help support cancer programs at Atrium Health’s Levine Cancer Institute and Levine Children’s Hospital.

With the precautions around COVID-19, the 2020 5K went virtual. Rodgers team members joined 966 other racers between May 23 – 30, 2020 to create their own course for Pounding Out Cancer. Rodgers’ team members ran routes in Lake Norman, South Charlotte and in neighborhoods and trails in between. Though we were running apart, we will always “Keep Pounding Together.”

The 2020 Keep Pounding 5K raised nearly $75,000 (and counting).  Support from the Keep Pounding 5K and Keep Pounding Fund are used to fund:

  • Clinical research (Phase I and II cancer research trials)
  • Patient navigators
  • Wellness and survivorship programs, education, and outreach
  • State-of-the-art technology and equipment (improving cancer detection and treatment)
