How Can I Help?
Without support from individuals, organizations, corporations, and foundations, the WVU Cancer Institute could not continue operating as West Virginia's premier cancer facility with a national reputation of excellence in cancer treatment, prevention, and research.
Zulia and his wife, Linda, hope that shared experience motivates people to contribute to the Norma Mae Huggins Endowment Fund at the WVU Foundation, established by WVU Men’s Basketball Coach Bob Huggins in memory of his mother. In fall 2019, the Zulias donated $50,000 of their own money and $50,000 from their Cincinnati-based business, Oxford Physical Therapy Centers, to launch a fundraising campaign that focused first on their employees. Now, they are welcoming Huggins back to the Queen City for a public benefit weekend to boost their efforts to raise money for cancer research. Presented by Oxford Physical Therapy Centers, Fleet Feet Cincinnati and Central Bank, the inaugural Huggins Homecoming comprises three events June 13-14 – a 5K run/walk, post-run bites and brews, and a dinner event featuring Huggins and special guests. The dinner event will be available to the public via a tickets-required livestream, with a limited on-site audience. All proceeds will benefit the Norma Mae Huggins Endowment Fund.
A Charleston man’s $1.27 million gift to the WVU Cancer Institute will help improve cancer care for future patients in memory of his late wife, certified orthopedic nurse Deborah K. Knowles.
