The Canes 5k presented by Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina and assisted by Raleigh Orthopaedic will include a 5k race around PNC Arena and surrounding areas, 100- and 200-yard kids’ dashes, multiple inflatables, and appearances by Hurricanes mascot Stormy and the Eye Care Associates Storm Squad. Members of the Carolina Hurricanes as well as the team’s staff and alumni are scheduled to participate. A pancake breakfast for all participants will follow the 5k race.
For information about registration, the race-day schedule, fundraising opportunities and more, please visit http://www.CarolinaHurricanes.com/Canes5k. New for 2014, racers can build and join their own running and walking teams to raise funds for the Kids ‘N Community Foundation.
All proceeds from the Canes 5k will benefit the Carolina Hurricanes Kids ‘N Community Foundation, which provides much needed funding to children’s charities and education programs throughout North Carolina. The Foundation has funded scholarship programs, youth hockey, educational and literacy efforts, children’s health programs, the arts and other children’s-related initiatives. Annually, the Foundation provides cash and in-kind contributions of more than $1 million to charitable and educational programs in North Carolina. Every member of the Hurricanes organization is actively involved in community activities, and the Hurricanes take great pride in the ability to have a positive impact in our state.
