A Kid Again Central Carolinas is a children’s charity based in Charlotte, North Carolina.  We are honored to serve families who are raising children living with life-threatening conditions across North and South Carolina. We do so by providing cost-free, fun-filled destination events throughout the year that we call Adventures.  We are grateful for the support of the Carolinas community and our valued partners who make it possible for us to provide comprehensive, practical support to help families cope with the extended effects of life-threatening conditions.
