In 2006, the Inaugural Friesen 5K Fun Run became one of the most successful first-time events in the area. This event has grown to over 2,000 participants each year and has raised over $200,000 for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of Eastern North Carolina.

The Carolina Hurricanes' coaching staff, along with many of the Hurricanes' players, make this an unforgettable day for participants and spectators alike. We have already secured verbal commitments from many of the players to return again this year. For updates on player participation, visit
