CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Families across the Queen City were decked in purple Saturday morning for the annual Isabella Santos Foundation 5K and 10K for Kids Cancer Through Ballantyne.

The annual race was held to bring the community together at Ballantyne Corporate Park and raise funds for kids cancer research.

The Isabella Santos Foundation was established to raise money for neuroblastoma research. The foundation is dedicated to Isabella Santos, a Charlotte girl who lost her battle against neuroblastoma.
