A Kid Again Central Carolinas To Host Their First-Ever Carowinds Adventure


A Kid Again families from throughout Central Carolinas will experience a special day at Carowinds on June 27 as the nonprofit hosts its first-ever in-person adventure.

“Since our Chapter officially launched in March 2021, the interest from the community has been incredible,” said Ed Paat, A Kid Again Central Carolinas Executive Director. “To date, we have nearly 250 families from across the Carolinas enrolled in our program. We’re thrilled to see them all in person at our first official Adventure, and thank our partners at Carowinds for making this happen.”

The mission of A Kid Again is to provide hope, happiness and healing for children with life-threatening conditions and their families through regular, cost-free Adventures. At the Carowinds Adventure, A Kid Again families will have a special day at the park including goodie bags and a picnic lunch at The Grove with a special appearance from the PEANUTS gang.

“Our community is fortunate to have the new Central Carolinas chapter of A Kid Again here, and we’re proud to support them,” said Manny Gonzalez, Carowinds vice president and general manager. “This Adventure gives families the opportunity to leave their cares at the front gate, have fun and make special memories together.”

To ensure the safety of participants, A Kid Again’s Carowinds Adventure will be following COVID-19 protocols, as per current CDC guidance.
