Captains and Walkers needed for the Komen Race for the Cure

UNC Health Care and UNC REX Healthcare are looking for captains to form teams and recruit walkers for The Susan G. Komen North Carolina Triangle to the Coast Race for the Cure.

This year’s event will be held Saturday, May 5 at The Frontier, Research Triangle Park, 800 Park Offices Drive.

This year our fundraising efforts are being co-led by Komen Race Event Chair and UNC Health Care System Executive Director Customer Experience, Suzanne Herman and Komen Board Member and UNC REX Chief Operating Office Susan Sandberg. As sponsors of the Survivor Pavilion, UNC and UNC REX are looking to see representation from teams across our service lines. The event features activities for the family a Tailgate Zone with food trucks and so much more!

All captains are asked to include “UNC” or “UNC REX” at the beginning of their individual team names. This will help with team coordination and communication. All registered team members will receive a UNC T-shirt available at the Hedrick Building, 211 Friday Center Drive, suite 1069 or UNC REX shirt available at 2500 Blue Ridge Rd., Suite 300.
