|In the fall of 2013, Nike Founder Phil Knight and his wife Penny issued a challenge to Oregon Health & Science University. If the institute could raise $500 million for cancer research in only two years, the Knights would match that amount – resulting in $1 billion in support of the OHSU Knight Cancer Institute and its vision to end cancer in Oregon.
In only 22 months, OHSU met the Knight’s $1 billion challenge and set a national fundraising record in the process. But the campaign was not without its setbacks. In fact, the “One Down” campaign encountered significant backlash at its launch, primarily within the Knight Cancer Institute’s own social communities.
