Carolina Handling is helping fight childhood cancer with a $5000 donation to NEGU: Never Ever Give Up, a program of the Jessie Rees Foundation.
Carolina Handling associates took the Greenville Swamp Rabbits #NEGU challenge during Childhood Cancer Awareness Month this past September to raise awareness and funds to purchase 200 JoyJars®–packages filled with toys, games and activities that are donated to children in hospitals being treated for cancer.
A check presentation was held on Saturday, January 20, 2024, during NASCAR Night at the Greenville Swamp Rabbits game, with NASCAR driver Carson Hocevar accepting the check on behalf of the Swamp Rabbits challenge from Carolina Handling President & CEO Brent Hillabrand.
Since 2011, more than 165,000 children fighting cancer have received JoyJars through the Jessie Rees Foundation. An international movement, JoyJars was inspired by Jessica Joy Rees who was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor at the age of 11 and chose to focus on bringing joy and hope to other children suffering from cancer. Jessica lost her battle with cancer in 2012, but her message of hope lives on through the foundation’s Never Ever Give Up campaign.
