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 4 at The Frontier, Research Triangle Park, 800 Park Offices Drive and will feature activities for the family, a Tailgate Zone with food trucks, and so much more.

All team captains

are asked to include “UNC” at the beginning of their individual team names. This will help with team coordination and communication. All team members should wear their UNC Commitment to Communities T-shirts or blue UNC REX Shirts. UNC Health Care shirts are available at the Hedrick Building, 211 Friday Center Drive, suite 1069. No appointment is necessary. UNC REX shirts have been distributed to all REX employees.
