After a successful first year in Manhattan Beach, CA followed by a visit to John Isner’s hometown of Greensboro, NC, the 3rd edition of the Isner Charity Challenge is heading to Chapel Hill, North Carolina, home of the event beneficiary, the UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center. The UNC Lineberger Cancer Center is one of the leading treatment facilities in the nation and is where John’s mother, Karen, was successfully treated during her two battles with colon cancer.
Isner will be joined by rising WTA star Christin McHale, celebrity emcee Wayne Bryan, father and former coach of the World No. 1 Doubles Team, Mike and Bob Bryan, and more.
“I’m excited to bring this event back to my home state for the second year in a row and to have the opportunity to support an organization that has given so much to my family. UNC Lineberger continues to make remarkable strides in the fight against cancer, and I’m looking forward to celebrating and supporting their work during the event.” – John Isner
