Introducing the Young Ambassadors Program

Carolinas HealthCare Foundation has teamed up with Time Warner Cable and former Carolina Panther, Mike Rucker to create the Young Ambassadors program. This program will recognize youth who are making a significant impact on healthcare in our community through fundraising efforts that benefit Carolinas HealthCare System facilities and/or funds.

Whether it’s a lemonade stand or a 5K, an initiative that raises $100 or $1,000, the Young Ambassadors program is a way to say THANK YOU to our young community members who are making a difference at Carolinas HealthCare System.

Each fall, Carolinas HealthCare Foundation recognizes Young Ambassadors through an annual awards ceremony. Whether through a bake sale, raising money at school, or participating in the annual LJCC Kids Triathlon, these youth continue to be an inspiration to kids and adults alike, proving that anyone can make a difference through fundraising at any age.
