$150,000 Raised For Cancer Research At Roy’s ‘Fast Break’

CHAPEL HILL–Head Coach Roy Williams hosted his eighth annual Fast Break Against Cancer Friday morning in the Dean Dome.

The breakfast event was highlighted by a live auction ran by legendary Tar Heel radio voice Woody Durham.

A grand total of $150,000 was raised for the UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center during the auction for packages that included a round of golf with Coach Williams and a chance to sit on the bench courtside for a UNC home game.

In addition, keynote speaker Coach Bill Cowher, formerly of the Super Bowl-winning Pittsburgh Steelers, delivered a heartfelt speech on the loss of his wife to cancer.

Attendees had the opportunity to sign a card for UNC women’s basketball coach Sylvia Hatchell as she steps away from her sideline duties to continue her battle with leukemia.
