Where the Money Goes
Reelin’ for Research raises funds to aid in the treatment and research of childhood cancer, with the ultimate goal of “landing” a cure.
Each year, $100,000 of the money raised goes into the Tony Montana Fellowship Fund at UNC Children’s Hospital which is then awarded to a physician specializing in childhood cancer research. The remainder of the funds are placed into an endowment with the purpose of eventually funding the fellowship into perpetuity.
Dr. Stuart Gold, Director of Pediatric Oncology and Hematology at the hospital, helped guide us in establishing the fellowship fund because he believes that these physicians are primary in the effort to cure childhood cancer. We rely on Dr. Gold, with his many years of experience and his every day involvement with children battling cancer, to select the fellowship recipients.
