Women’s Lax Run to Keep Eve’s Memory Alive

Women’s Lacrosse held a different type of practice this Saturday.  The team decided to dedicate their practice  to a special cause, the 2nd Eve Carson Memorial 5k for Education. The team lined up for the third year in a row to honor the legacy of former Student Body President Eve Carson.

“We feel very fortunate in being able to give back and tribute her legacy. Most of the women on the team weren’t here for the tragedy but having everyone come together plus over a thousand other supporters for Eve’s cause makes me proud and honored to be apart of the Carolina community.” Senior Corey Donohoe, Women’s Lacrosse.

The Eve Carson Memorial 5k for Education was created by Pi Beta Phi and Phi Delta Theta.  The event celebrates the leadership and support of community service that Carson exhibited during her career at UNC. Last year the event raised over $27,000 for education and had more than 2,000 participants. Proceeds of the event go directly to the Eve Carson Memorial Scholarship and to First Book, a national literacy organization.

“Study hard and work hard, play hard, keep an open mind, take pride in yourself, in your school, in what you produce, and the way you help others, if you make mistakes mae sure you learn from them and never give up, stay strong to the finish. “- Eve Carson

  1. Way to go Women’s Lacrosse! I was the same year as Eve at Carolina and I remember our team coming together to honor her in 2008. As an alum of the program I am glad to see that you are all carrying on the tradition! Go Heels! ~Mandy
