19th Annual Franklin 5K

Start of Race

The UNC chapter of Zeta Tau Alpha’s 19th annual Franklin 5K to support breast cancer research and education was Saturday March 1st.

Registration for the race, which included a commemorative navy blue T-shirt, was $15 in advance and $20 on the day of the race. Proceeds from the event benefited the Susan G. Komen Foundation, the UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center for Breast Cancer Research, the Arc of Orange County, and the Zeta Tau Alpha Foundation, Inc. Lauren Kelley, a senior in Zeta Tau Alpha and this year’s 5K director, hopes that proceeds from the race exceed last year’s total of more than $35,000. 

Participants met at Bynum Circle off of Cameron Avenue to check-in, get an ankle bracelet that contained chip technology to calculate runners’ times, grab a bite to eat and store their gear. Cancer survivors were provided with pink survivors bracelets to wear during the run. The race kicked off at 9 a.m. and concluded in the same place with an awards ceremony and celebration.
