Created by former NFL greats Harris Barton and Ronnie Lott, Champion Charities is dedicated to helping children and families in need.


Harris and Ronnie

Harris Barton and Ronnie Lott founded Champion Charities in 2004. Harris lost both of his parents to brain tumors. Believing more could be done to find a cure and better treatments, Ronnie approached Harris with the idea that they had to do something themselves. He was right – more needed to be done: brain tumors are one of the most lethal forms of cancer for children under the age of 15. They are also the leading cause of cancer-related death for adults 35 years and under, and yet brain tumors are one of the lowest-funded areas of cancer research. As our top priority, Champion Charities has contributed a significant amount of money towards treating and researching brain tumors as well as supporting patients suffering from the disease.
