Supporting our Community

Tuesday July 15, 2014

The 6th annual Cary Park 5K & Fun Run was held on May 3rd, 2014. This event was a family-friendly 5K Race and a 1 Mile Fun Run dedicated to encouraging fitness for families, children and individuals of all ages in our community and to promote living a generous and healthy way of life. The event benefited a wonderful organization called Horse and Buddy, which exists to help people with special needs improve balance, muscle tone, motor skills, and self-esteem through therapeutic horseback riding.

UNC Wellness Centers were excited to be a part of this event by donating awards including personal training sessions, 1 hour massages, 1 month memberships, water bottles, drawstring bags and umbrellas. As part of our misson, we strive to contribute positively to the community by leveraging our expertise and facilities to support community events and causes that impact community wellness. Please contact us at wellness@unch.unc.edu if you have an event that UNC Wellness Centers could possibly support.
