Carolina Panthers Charities, the charitable arm of the NFL’s Carolina Panthers, announced a $200,000 grant to support Rock Hill’s Miracle Park Tuesday (June 8). And Nicole Tepper announced an additional $500,000 from the Tepper Foundation!

Miracle Park, set to open its first phase this summer, is an inclusive place in Rock Hill where people with all different abilities can participate in a full-range of sports.

The gift announcement was made at the park by Riley Fields and Nicole Tepper at a gathering of local officials, major donors and future users of the facility.

“This major commitment from the Panthers is a significant boost to making the Miracle Park dream come true. Dave and Nicole Tepper’s interest in our area is shown time and time again,” said David Williams, president of Williams & Fudge in Rock Hill and a member of the Miracle Park leadership team.
