The Get Heeled 5K, organized by the Pink Pacers volunteer group, will benefit UNC Lineberger’s Pediatric Oncology and Hematology Clinic. The 5K (3.1-mile) race will be held from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday, Sept. 14, at 100 Friday Center Drive, Chapel Hill. There will also be a 1-mile race for kids. After the race, participants are invited to the MC Spirit Zone for food, drinks and entertainment.
Last year’s race included over 850 runners and raised $40,000 for UNC Lineberger’s Pediatric Oncology and Hematology Clinic. The fundraiser supports the services of the clinic including an in-hospital school, art therapy, play therapy and occupational therapy.
