Eve Carson Memorial 5KDear Family and Friends,

Pi Beta Phi Sorority and Phi Delta Theta Fraternity are once again partnering on Saturday, November 12, 2016 to host the ninth annual Eve Carson Memorial 5K for Education to honor the legacy of the former student body president and accomplished student, Eve Marie Carson.  

As student body president, Eve had a vision to create a scholarship to honor outstanding senior students. After her tragic death, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill established the Eve Marie Carson Memorial Junior-Year Merit Scholarship. The award is a one-year merit scholarship that recognizes students who have realized their leadership potential while at Carolina. Proceeds from this year’s event will once again benefit the Eve Marie Carson Memorial Junior-Year Merit Scholarship, the Pi Beta Phi Literacy Fund, and CEO 4 Teens.

With registration of over 2,300 participants in the past, the Eve Carson Memorial 5K for Education holds the record for the largest campus race in history, and we are excited to see our numbers grow this year. Every year, each member of Pi Beta Phi and Phi Delta Theta plays an important role in raising support for this cause. Last year, we raised over $86,000 in-kind donations and $47,000 to divide among our three beneficiaries, a staggering amount made possible through generous donations and enthusiastic support from members of the community and our families. We would greatly appreciate your support for this year’s 5K. You can find information about donating online and this year’s race by visiting evecarson5k.com, or you may make checks payable to Pi Beta Phi, or the Eve Carson Memorial Scholarship and send them to:
