About the Scott Carter Foundation

Scott Carter was a 13-year old boy who died in December 1993 after a courageous three-year battle with bone cancer.  The Scott Carter Foundation was formed to help make Scott’s dream of finding a cure a reality.  Because SCF is operated by volunteers, almost all money raised will go toward finding a cure.  Scott believed that if enough time, energy and money were devoted to children’s cancer research, a cure could be found.  Please join us as we run through Walt Disney World, as Scott did as a child, and make a difference for children’s cancer research! 

Scott Carter’s HEROES @ ESPN Wide World of Sports 

During the duration of his illness, Scott put together a remarkable collection of autographed memorabilia, which he called “Scott Carter’s Heroes”.  His dream was to display the collection to raise money for children’s cancer research.  The collection contains over 300 items, including jerseys, balls, bats, boxing gloves and hockey sticks from Michael Jordan, Arnold Palmer, Greg Norman, Wayne Gretzky, Muhammad Ali, Garth Brooks, Norman Schwarzkopf, Tiger Woods and more.  A large portion of the collection is currently on display at the ESPN Wide World of Sports.  Our runners will have the opportunity to visit the collection downstairs in the Fieldhouse when you visit the ESPN Wide World of Sports during race weekend!

Thank you for the opportunity to share our story with you and we appreciate your support!
