Papa John's Charity Challenge

Monday August 23, 2021

Papa John’s has always strived to support our communities and be a champion for those in need. As part of these efforts, we were proud to host the fourth annual Papa John’s Charity Challenge in 2020. Our Charity Challenge Founders, Charles Burris and Mike Zimmer wanted to provide a venue that mixes the joy they have for golf and their personal dedication to support the fight to end cancer. The goal is to provide funding for cancer research that creates more cancer survivors. Since 2017 the Papa John’s Charity Challenge has raised nearly $500,000. All proceeds of this event go to The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center – Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and Richard J. Solove Research Institute. Join our fundraising event to fund research to support the end of cancer on August 23rd, 2021 at The Medallion Club!

St. Marys Tailgate for Cancer

Saturday September 11, 2021

Since its inception in 2009, this event has raised over $1,200,000 to help cancer research and end this terrible disease. The event always takes place in the fall and is held in either September or October during an Ohio State football game. The day starts out with a 5K Run/Walk and then the festivities begin afterwards. There are live auctions, silent auctions, 50/50, live entertainment, Ohio State cheerleaders and the OSU game on the big screen! Then at the end of the day, there's always a drawing for two Buckeye cruise for cancer tickets. There's always something for everyone of all ages! As Traci Lauth the President and founder always attests, "Together we will win!", and we certainly do with the amazing community that we have, no one is ever alone in their battle to conquer cancer!

Location St. Mary's, Ohio
