Friesen 5K set for Aug. 30

Hurricanes trainer Pete Friesen will host his annual preseason 5K run around the RBC Center on Aug. 30. This is the fourth running of the event, which has raised more than $75,000 for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of Eastern N.C.

Good turnout for a cause: the Friesen 5K

The Hurricanes' Rod Brind'Amour didn't finish first in the Pete Friesen 5K Fun Run today at the RBC Center, but the captain was "low Cane" and was one of 34 team members and staff who participated.

All proceeds from the event benefit the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society's Eastern N.C. chapter, and more than 1,000 people turned out to be a part of it on a sunny, steamy day.

"I don't do any long-distance running but I wanted to do this," Brind'Amour said. "The more guys who support this, the bigger it will be and help increase awareness.

Reminder: Friesen 5K is Sunday

A large turnout is expected Sunday for the Friesen 5K Fun Run at the RBC Center, with several Canes players and staff members expected to participate.

The event benefits the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Eastern N.C. chapter, which serves patients battling leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma in 49 counties.

It should be an emotional day in that the event will honor Julia Rowe, the young fan who was an inspiration during the Canes' 2006 run to the Stanley Cup.

Friesen 5K set for Sept. 14

Hurricanes trainer Pete Friesen will hold his third annual pre-camp 5K around the RBC Center on Sept. 13, but this one may be a little more meaningful than the first two.

Friesen said the event will be held in honor of young Julia Rowe, whose battle with leukemia proved so inspiring to the Hurricanes during their run to the Stanley Cup in 2006.
