Phil Knight Pledges $500 Million to OHSU
By Christina Kemp,
Phil Knight and his wife are pledging a huge amount to Oregon Health and Science University for cancer research but there's a catch.
The Nike Founder will give $500 million to OHSU's Knight Cancer Institute as long as the hospital can match the donation in next two years.
The hospital has accepted the challenge. In a press release, OHSU president Joe Robertson said the billion dollar initiative would change the lives of cancer patients around the world.
