Americans John Isner and Justin Gimelstob received their ATP ACES For Charity grants from ATP Executive Chairman and President Chris Kermode on Thursday at the Sony Open Tennis in Miami. The $15,000 grants will respectively support their charitable causes, the UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center and the Justin Gimelstob Children’s Fund.

The UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center serves the people of North Carolina and brings together leading physicians and scientists to investigate and improve the prevention, early detection and treatment of cancer. One of the leading cancer centres in the United States, it successfully treated Isner’s mother, Karen, who was told that her cancer was incurable. Isner hosts an annual charity event in North Carolina in support of UNC Lineberger.

The Justin Gimelstob Children’s Fund provides financial support to a variety of children’s charities in northern New Jersey and the New York metropolitan region, and has raised more than a million dollars since its establishment in 1998. The main beneficiary of the JGCF is The Valerie Fund, which supports comprehensive health care of children with cancer and blood disorders. The Valerie Fund Children’s Centers treats more than 5,000 children annually.
