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.
