Tar Heel Service Day: 5K Virtual Run

The Atlanta Carolina Club is always looking for creative and safe ways to give back to Carolina and our community, even during a pandemic.

During the week of October 12, 2020, the General Alumni Association (GAA) is encouraging Tar Heels around the world to run or walk 5k (3.1 miles) to benefit your favorite UNC-related cause. You get to set the time, course, and speed (although we would love to help with the soundtrack).  Select your participation level, and choose one of the UNC-benefiting causes you would like to support.

We ask that participants select the Atlanta Carolina Club’s SCHOLARSHIP FUND.

All proceeds will go directly to support us raise money for local students heading off to UNC (or your selected organization).  After your walk or run, post a picture of yourself on social media using the hashtag #TarHeelServiceDay5k.  GAA members will receive a Tar Heel Service Day mini-pennant when they register!
