Panthers' Greg Olsen joins The Cowfish to fight heart disease with sushi
A sushi roll available at multiple locations in North Carolina this summer will give back to the community by supporting families affected by congenital heart disease.Posted — Updated
$2 of each $18 roll purchased will be donated to the Heartest Yard, an initiative created by the Carolina Panthers' Greg Olsen and his wife Kara.
The Olsens worked with Levine Children’s Hospital in Charlotte to create the foundation in 2012 when their own child was diagnosed with heart disease.
"[Greg and Kara] are salmon lovers and were interested in choosing ingredients for their roll that would be both delicious and heart healthy," said Jennifer Brantley with The Cowfish. "But their favorite part about this experience is having the chance to raise money for an organization that’s so important to their family.”
The Heartest Roll will be available through September at The Cowfish location across from North Hills and at Cowfish locations in Charlotte and Birmingham. eeZ Fusion and Sushi in Huntersville will also serve the roll through September.
