The Founders Wall at Johns Hopkins University recognizes supporters of the university and Johns Hopkins Medicine. 

Giant Food was added to the wall Friday after the company raised more than $11 million dollars for pediatric cancer research at the Johns Hopkins Sidney Kimmel Cancer Center since 2008.

"You have made an extraordinary impact on the lives of young patients that now have a fighting chance to not let cancer stop them from doing all the things that kids should be doing," said Ronald Daniels, president of Johns Hospkins University.

With the addition of Giant Foods, there are 166 names on the Founders Wall, whose contributions have matched or exceeded Mr. Johns Hopkins’ visionary founding gift of $7 million.
