ISC's Beginnings...

Indiana Sports Charities (ISC) was founded in 1989 by Ron Kittle. Ron and his volunteer staff are dedicated to assisting cancer research facilities and education institutions throughout Chicagoland and Northwest Indiana.

Our Mission...

We believe one day the threat of cancer will be a thing of the past. Our mission is simple: do our part to help find a cure for cancer, by providing the financial support that is necessary. No politics. No overhead operating expenses. ISC is a completely volunteer effort, there are no paid staff here.
So each member of the team is contributing their time and skill(s) to the cause.
This also means that you can rest assured that every net dollar we receive from your contributions will go directly to the institutions that so desperately need it to carry on their research.

The Annual "Golf Celebrity Classic"...

We're inviting you to come out and be a part of this years Celebrity Golf Classic! It's going to be a blast! Come out for a relaxing day of golf, some great food, a whole lot of fun, and most of all... To help support a wonderful cause!
 

Childhood vs. Adult Cancers

Childhood cancers primarily affect children, teens and young adults. When cancer strikes children and young people, it affects them differently than it does adults.
Young patients often have a more advanced stage of cancer when first diagnosed. Only about 20% of adults with cancer show evidence of spreading at the time of diagnosis, yet 80% of children show that cancer has spread in the body when the disease is first diagnosed.
While most adult cancers result from lifestyle factors, such as smoking, diet, occupation, and other exposure to cancer-causing agents, the causes of most childhood cancers, are not yet known.
