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.

Until a few years ago, $100,000 of the money raised went to the Tony Montana Fellowship Fund at UNC Children’s Hospital. The fellowship is awarded annually to a physician specializing in childhood cancer research. The remainder of the funds were placed into an endowment with the purpose of eventually funding the fellowship into perpetuity. We are proud to say that that goal has been met!

Today, funds raised are used for various research efforts depending on the current needs of UNCCH. These include research grants & clinical trial assistance, to name a few. We work closely with the hospital each year to determine the best ways to support and advance the treatment of childhood cancers.  For more information, please reach out to us as info@reelinforresearch.org.
