Dozens of Panthers fans were treated to a meet-and-greet with tight end Greg Olsen and linebackers Luke Kuechly and A.J. Klein Saturday morning.
The event, held at Champions Sports Performance in Cornelius, helped raise money for The HEARTest Yard fund of Olsen’s Receptions for Research foundation.
After their son T.J. was born with a congenital heart defect in 2012, Olsen and his wife teamed with Levine’s Children’s Hospital to start The HEARTest Yard.
The fund helps assist families of babies affected by congenital heart disease with services like in-home private nursing care, physical therapy and speech therapy.
