Annual Celebration Run/Walk raises money for Kay Yow Cancer Fund

Come join WithersRavenel as we celebrate the life of former N.C. State basketball coach Kay Yow and help raise money for cancer research.

The third annual Kay Yow Cancer Fund Celebration Run/Walk will be Saturday, February 16 at Stafford Commons in Raleigh. WithersRavenel is proud to be a sponsor for the event. We will cover the cost for employees to register and are encouraging participants to bring their families. The walk is a 4K in distance with a mini-K option.

In her 38 years as a college basketball coach, most of that time at N.C. State, Kay Yow recorded more than 700 career victories. She was first diagnosed with breast cancer in 1987 and fought a 22-year battle with the disease while continuing to lead the Wolfpack. Yow died in 2009.

Yow is a member of the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame and leaves a lasting legacy not only as a coach, but also as a beacon of strength in the fight against cancer.
