The Gymnastics team came out to support and cheer on the Get Heeled 5k and the Carolina Dreams 1 mile.The Tar Heels lined the race course with posters and enthusiasm during the 5k, and they helped kick off the 1 miler alongside the Tar Heel Cheerleaders. Kristin Aloi is a junior on the women’s gymnastics team and a member of Carolina Dreams. She expressed how great it was to have her team giving back to the community; “It’s so fun to see all the energy everyone has here and the excitement they have to raise money for such a good cause.”
This year, the race team, which included the efforts of the Pink Pacers, decided to focus their efforts to UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center's Pediatric Oncology and Hematology Clinic. 100% of the money raised through registration, donations, and fundraising were given to this Clinic to assist with Family Support Services.
