Carolina For The Kids Foundation's Kilometers For The Kids is a fundraiser for the patients and families at UNC Children’s Hospital, and is a wonderful event for students, families, and people of all ages! This year we will be holding two different races to accommodate all skill levels: a one-mile Fun Run and a 5K!

Carolina For The Kids Foundation is the largest student-run, non-profit fundraising organization in North Carolina. We fund what medical insurance cannot cover for patients and their families at UNC Children's Hospital. We stand by our mission statement:  "The mission of Carolina For The Kids Foundation is to overcome childhood illness by providing major support for the medical, surgical and emotional care of the patients and families served by UNC Children's." We believe that our community can make a difference by helping remove the burdens associated with hospitalization, such as travel expenses, food and electricity for medical equipment. Since our inception in 1999, we have raised more than $5.6 million for families in need! If you would like to learn more about other fundraising opportunities or about our organization, visit our website at to learn more about specific programs.

All Fun Run participants will receive a goodie bag and the top three runners in each category of the 5K will receive a prize! Make sure to register by August 30th in order to guarantee a shirt of your desired size. The 5K will start at 9am and the Fun Run will start at 9:15. There will be pre and post-race activities, along with light refreshments at McCorkle Place, one of UNC’s historic quads right next to the Old Well!

Please join us on September 23rd at 9AM for a fun-filled and inspiring morning.
