"It’s very important for me to give back to an unbelievable cause that’s so close to my heart, UNC Lineberger Cancer Center, where my very own mother was treated for cancer. The amazing doctors at Lineberger saved her life and have saved countless other lives."

EVENT DATE: Feb 07, 2015
Dear Family, Family and Fans,
In February my annual charity event, the Ebix Charity Challenge, will return to my hometown of Greensboro, NC. We will be celebrating our fifth year and once again all proceeds will benefit an unbelievable cause that is very close to my heart, UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center, which is where my very own mother was treated for colon cancer. Seeing my mother sick was so surreal. Up to that point she had never had anything worse than a cold. It really took our family by storm. We were all devastated, but at the same time we stuck together. Her courage and her will to fight that huge mountain of adversity was really inspiring for me. What she did and how she was able to overcome her disease was amazing. The doctors at UNC Lineberger saved my mother’s life, and they’ve saved countless other lives as well. For me when it came to picking a charity for my event, it was an easy call. My family is forever in debt to UNC Lineberger. If I can give back to them even in the smallest way, I’m going to do my best to do it.
Earlier this year, I was honored and grateful to have the ATP World Tour generously support my cause by making a $15,000 donation directly to UNC Lineberger through their ATP for Aces Charity program. With this Crowdrise page, it is my goal to match the ATP’s donation and raise an additional $15,000 for UNC Lineberger. Together, we can all make a huge difference for this incredible institution!
Please join me in supporting UNC Lineberger by making a donation and help us reach our goal of $15,000. It is really easy and all contributions are tax-deductible.
**All donations over $10 are accepted and appreciated**
Thank you so much for your support and generosity. And… if you’re in Greensboro on February 7th, make sure to come see me at UNC Greensboro for my annual charity event! Check it out here: isnercharitychallenge.com
