The P.J. St. Martin & Zack Dobbin Memorial 5K Run/Walk is the biggest fundraising event of the year for Camp CARE, a nonprofit organization that provides a weeklong summer camp and year-round activities to children who have or have had cancer and their families. All 5K proceeds go toward creating the "best week of the year" for our campers, so they can enjoy fun activities like swimming, boating, crafts, music, dancing and most importantly…making new friends!
We believe that a child is, first and foremost, a child – not just a cancer patient. We provide support, fun and friendship throughout a family’s journey.
All activities, including summer camp, are free of charge to all families, funded entirely by donations and staffed by volunteers. Camp expenses are more than $500 per child, so we can’t do it without your support! Each year, we serve more than 200 campers and their families receiving treatment from Carolinas HealthCare System’s Levine Children’s Hospital and Novant Health Hemby Children’s Hospital.

The 2019 Camp CARE 5K is just around the corner!
This year’s 5K falls on Easter Weekend…
…and we’ve chosen Star Wars as our camp theme this year.
We’re hoping for some hopping star wars costumes at this year’s event!
