About the event

Join the UNC Student National Dental Association in the annual Oral Cancer 5K Run/Walk on Sunday March 3rd, 2024 at 7:30AM!
In honor of UNC Adam’s School of Dentistry’s very own oral cancer survivor, Dr. Scott Eidson, all proceeds will be donated to the UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center to provide accessible and affordable treatment to head and neck cancer patients throughout North Carolina. 100% of the proceeds go towards helping patients pay all the bills of miscellaneous treatment expenses - transportation to and from the hospital, additional housing expenses required for them to stay close to the hospital during their treatment, mortgage/rent and utility bills for patients who have lost income because of their cancer diagnosis, and childcare while the parent is receiving treatment. Your support - whether by signing up and running, donating, or both - has such an important impact on all these patients' abilities to afford and get treated. Thank you for being a part of the solution today!   When: Sunday March 3rd, 2024 at 7:30AM EST (rain or shine)

Where: Old Well, 180 E Cameron Ave, Chapel Hill, NC 27514
Parking: Any lot nearby is open and free on Sundays (ex. Swain Lot, Hanes Lot). You can also park anywhere on Franklin St and walk over!

Race Route: The running route will be the Franklin 5K, a USATF-certified course. Electronic chip timing will be used. Strollers and wagons welcome.

Activities: Self-screening education and fun games/activities for the whole family!   Payment & Registration:
$25.00 + $3.25 processing fees* (Pre-registration by Friday, March 1st)
$30.00 + $3.25 processing fees* (Day-of registration on Sunday, March 3rd starting at 6:30am) Day-of registration will be available 7:00-7:30AM on race-day at the check-in table.  
T-Shirt: Participants who pre-register by Thursday, February 15th will be guaranteed a free T-shirt. Participants who sign up between February 15th and March 3rd will receive a T-shirt as available. Packets (race bib with pins) and T-shirts will be distributed the morning of the race.
Awards: Prizes will be given to the overall first, second, and third place runners, as well as the top male and female runners in each age group: under 19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60+.   Important Payment Information: *The website's processing fee is reduced if you register more people per transaction. For example, if you register your friend and yourself in one transaction, the fee is reduced from $3.25 to $1.62. Thank you for helping cover the fees for this transaction - your help ensures that the full $25 amount can go towards our patients!    If you'd like to donate without paying processing fees, you can donate directly at our site instead: https://give.unc.edu/donate?f=202444&p=dent
