Brian and Tricia White

Early in life, Brian White was exposed to the realities of cancer when his four-year-old sister was diagnosed with leukemia.  Thankfully she fully recovered and now has children of her own, but the experience stuck with him. Now as a father of two little girls, Brian and his wife, Tricia, recognize the importance of funding cancer research and supporting cancer patients and their families during treatment and recovery.

Brian and Tricia generously support UNC Lineberger and the N.C. Cancer Hospital during the year through their business, Fleet Feet Sports in Carrboro.  Most recently, Fleet Feet was the title sponsor of the Get Heeled 5K, a family-friendly walk/run event benefiting patient Pediatric Oncology and Hematology supportive care programs at the  N.C. Cancer Hospital.

“So many people in the running community have a connection to cancer either through their experience, that of a family member, or through fundraising for a cause.  We are proud to partner with UNC Lineberger because we recognize how lucky we are to live in an area where the absolute best cancer care is available to everyone.”

Brian, Tricia and the staff at Fleet Feet hope that you will join them on Thursday night, October 18, from 7-9 p.m. for Diva Night 2012.  This free event, open to the public, is a night that you don’t want to miss!  So, put on something pink and head over to Fleet Feet at 300 E. Main Street in Carrboro for food, drinks and festivities, including massages and reflexology.  Space is limited, so do not forget to RSVP.
