Spring Fling Fun Run and Walk

Spring Fling is a 2.7 mile fun run or 1.5 mile walk open to all UNC-Chapel Hill faculty and staff. In previous years, over 300 participants have completed the Spring Fling individually or as part of a departmental team. The event promotes physical activity, health and well-being and provides employees with the opportunity to contribute to the Glenwood Elementary Family Assistance Program by making a canned food donation. In addition, pet donations will be given to the Orange County Animal Shelter. Free refreshments will be provided for participants after the event. This event is rain or shine!
