The Canes 5k assisted by Raleigh Orthopaedic and Quintiles 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 Storm Squad. Members of the Carolina Hurricanes as well as the team’s staff and alumni are scheduled to participate. A breakfast for all participants will follow the 5k race.

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. During the 2015-16 season, the Kids ‘N Community Foundation donated $575,000 in grant monies to 27 North Carolina children’s non-profit organizations. 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.
