Emerald Isle Marathon 2019 Benefiting Family House
SECU Family House at UNC Hospitals was the proud beneficiary of the 2019 Emerald Isle Marathon, Half Marathon and 5K! The race was held on March 30, 2019. We are proud to serve families from all over the state, including from Emerald Isle and Carteret County. Since 2012, Family House has welcomed more than 2,000 patients and guests from Carteret, Onslow, Jones, Craven, and Pamlico counties. Former Family House guests, Family House staff members, and volunteers staffed a water station at mile 12 of the half marathon/mile 25 of the marathon.
Family House staff members including Database Manager Jen Adams
and her son Jackson participated in the race!
We'd like to say a special thank you to Art and Diane Schools. Art is a former mayor of Emerald Isle and has lived there for 25 years. Art and Diane spent time at SECU Family House in early 2017 following a medical procedure and have been strong supporters since. We are grateful to the Schools' for making the connection between the Emerald Isle Marathon and Family House!
