KMF's 2nd Annual Golf Against Gliomas Tournament

On September 13th, we will host our 2nd Annual Golf Against Gliomas Tournament benefiting our research partners at the Duke Brain Tumor Center.

Our partners at Duke need a steady stream of private funding in order to continue to conduct their clinical trial research. With private funding, they hope to bear enough promising results to receive federal grants worth tens of millions of dollars – grants that will take KMF funded clinical trials to a nationwide level!

Our Story

Our namesake, Knox Martin, was diagnosed with an aggressive form of brain cancer in September 2017. Despite surgeries, setbacks, radiation, and chemotherapy, Knox continued to set goals and live life to the fullest. He traveled, worked, studied, and was a 2020 graduate of the University of Georgia.

Our foundation began less than four months after Knox passed away from an aggressive brain tumor called Glioblastoma (GBM) in December 2020. He was 24 years old.

Glioblastoma is the most aggressive, underfunded, and under-researched type of primary brain tumor.

Loved ones of Knox formed this foundation in February of 2021 in his honor and to carry on his legacy. Today, we partner with neuro-oncologists and researchers at the Preston Robert Tisch Brain Tumor Center at Duke University.

Our gifts to Duke, totaling $950K since KMF’s inception, have funded the research and development of THREE FDA-approved clinical trials, which have supported over 29 high-grade glioma patients (and counting) across the country. Learn more about our Clinical Trials.

We are thrilled to continue building upon KMF's upward trajectory and exponential growth with the 2nd Annual Golf Against Gliomas Tournament this fall! We're so excited to invite you to join us again this fall as we fight to fund a cure for this deadly disease.

A big thank you to our sponsors!
