Events: 5th Annual Women's Walk
5th Annual Women's Walk
The sun (almost) shined on nearly 500 women, men, children and pets who traded places with UNC's student-athletes Saturday morning, April 20th. The 500 participants completed UNC's 5th Annual Women's Walk to support female student-athlete scholarships, and, at this sporting event, it was UNC's student-athletes who were cheering from the sidelines. The walkers and many "virtual walkers" (donors who didn't walk) raised a record $60,000 for athletic scholarships. The Women’s Walk is critical in helping to provide athletic aid to over 125 female student-athletes on an annual basis.
High fives from the athletes who lined the 30-minute route around campus were the highlight of the event for many of the walkers, especially the younger set. Culminating in Butler-Hancock with breakfast and heartfelt speeches from student-athletes and coaches, the walk was another win for UNC Athletics.
You can make an online donation to the Women's Walk until May 31, 2013 and mark your calendars for the 6th Annual Women's Walk next April!
