Papa John’s Charity Challenge

Nearly $500,000 Raised Since 2017


Papa John’s has always striven to support our communities and be a champion for those in need. As part of these efforts, we were very proud to introduce Papa John’s Charity Challenge in 2017.

Our Charity Challenge Founders, Charles Burris and Mike Zimmer wanted to provide a venue that mixes the joy they have for golf and their personal dedication to support the fight to end cancer. The goal of the event is to provide funding for cancer research that creates more cancer survivors.  So far, we’ve raised nearly $500,000 since 2017. All proceeds of this event will go to The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center – Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and Richard J. Solove Research Institute.

We hope you join us in the fight to end cancer and we look forward to seeing you at the 5th Annual Papa John’s Charity Challenge on Monday August 23rd, 2021!
