The UNC Association of Nursing Students (ANS) is pleased to announce their inaugural Heels for Healing 5K and Kid’s Fun Run for BounceBack Kids!
Heels for Healing is a nonprofit initiative of the Association of Nursing Students at UNC-Chapel Hill that is working in conjunction with BounceBack Kids to help raise money and awareness for children with life-challenging medical conditions and their families and caregivers. Bouncback Kids programs recognize that every member of the family struggles when a child has a life-challenging medical condition. Their goal is simple: Fitness, Fun and Family when children need it most!
The event will take place on UNC-Chapel Hill’s beautiful campus on Saturday, March 31, 2012 at 9am. The USATF certified 5K race will commence at 9am at the Old Well followed by a half mile Kid’s Fun Run at 9:50am.
Proceeds benefit both BounceBack Kids, a local non-profit that serves children with life-challenging medical conditions and their families and caregivers as well as ANS. The proceeds going towards ANS will be used to meet the needs of our members, namely supporting UNC nursing students who wish to attend state and national nursing conferences.
