Canes 5k presented by Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina

Canes 5kThe third annual Canes 5k presented by Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina and assisted by Raleigh Orthopaedic will take place at PNC Arena on Sunday, Sept. 13 at 9 a.m.

The event includes a 5k race around PNC Arena and surrounding areas. Click here to view this year's course. 100- and 200-yard kids dashes, multiple inflatables, and appearances by 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.

Back in 2015, participants can build and join their own running or walking teams and fundraise in support of the Kids 'N Community Foundation.

If you aren't ready to take on the full course but still want to be a part of the day and support the Kids 'N Community Foundation, we invite fans to sign up and walk or run the first portion of the course (one-mile loop around PNC Arena).

The last day to register online for the Canes 5k is Sept. 8. If you still would like to participate you may sign up at PNC Arena during packet pick-up on Thursday, Sept. 10 and Friday, Sept. 11 (times TBD).

Kids 'N Community Foundation

All proceeds 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.

In the 2013-2014 year of funding the Kids ‘N Community Foundation donated $582,000 to 32 different children’s charitable organizations in the Triangle and throughout the state. This number brings the team and Foundation’s donation total to $12 million in cash and in-kind services since 1997.

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.
