ABOUT THE FUND
The Zach Ramsey Childrens Cancer Fund
Zach wanted to leave something other than just a name behind. With a few thousand dollars in his savings account, he started the Zach Ramsey Children’s Cancer Fund, a (501)(c)(3) and is managed by the Novant Health Foundation. Zach asked his friends and family to honor his life by continuing to raise money to help families with the financial burdens of pediatric cancer. Also, each year a portion of Zach's Fund annual spend directly sponsors a Make a Wish child in the Charlotte region.
