Jan. 16, 2015

Get your running shoes ready! The 2015 Pirate Nurse 5K will take place on Saturday, March 28. All proceeds for this event, organized by the East Carolina University College of Nursing, benefit nursing students through the ECU Nursing Senior Class Scholarship Fund and the Linda Pynn Nurse Practitioner Scholarship Fund.

Runners and walkers are welcome to enjoy the course, which traverses the ECU Health Sciences Campus. If you're not interested in registering but want to get involved, we invite you to volunteer. It takes many hands to make this a well-organized, fun event for our runners so contact us at the email below if you'd like to volunteer! We provide volunteer verification if needed for students filling community service requirements for coursework.
