Eve Marie Carson was a beloved and invaluable member of the University of North Carolina community. Eve possessed a passion for the university and its students, and truly embodied the Carolina Way in every aspect of her life. As former Chancellor Moeser described at her memorial in Polk Place, “Eve personified the Carolina Spirit…She felt the very pulse and the heartbeat of this university.” Eve described the Carolina Way as the intangible element that makes the University more than just a place- it makes it a home and a gives it an identity of its own. Moeser challenged the campus community to honor Eve’s memory by uniting to demonstrate the Carolina Way as Eve envisioned.

Pi Beta Phi Sorority and Phi Delta Theta Fraternity have partnered to give the campus an annual opportunity to answer Chancellor Moeser’s challenge and unite in Eve’s memory. Last year, we raised over $58,000 for our education initiatives, a staggering amount made possible through generous donations and enthusiastic support from the community. With over 1,800 registrants last year, the Eve Carson Memorial 5k for Education remained the largest campus race in history for the fifth year in a row and we are so excited to see our numbers grow as more and more people become involved in 2013.

This year, the Eve Carson Memorial 5k for Education will benefit the Eve Marie Carson Memorial Junior-Year Merit Scholarship, Pi Beta Phi's Literacy Fund, and CEO4Teens. Please join us in honoring Eve with a race through the campus that she both served and loved! This year's race will start at 9 am, with pre-race festivities beginning at 8 am. This year's program includes pre-race stretching, numerous speakers, and performances! Participants are highly encouraged to arrive early to pick up their race packets and to enjoy the morning's programming. Pre-registration includes a race t-shirt.  On race day, free public parking is available in the UNC Bell Tower parking deck, located off of South Road between the Stone Center and the Bell Tower.
