Run For "Gunny" Pearl
The UNCW School of Nursing graduating class of December 2009 has come together to help out a fellow student whose husband was critically injured while serving our country. As friends, community members, and Americans we want to help out and are organizing a 5K run/walk with a BBQ (Catered by Sawmill Grill), immediately following the event, for this family’s benefit in the hopes that it will allow them the peace of mind that for a period of time, money will not be an issue and they can focus on other important things.
The event will take place at Hugh MacRae Park, November 15th.  For more details and registration:

    BTW, I don't know "Gunny" Pearl, but had a nursing student shadow me this semester tell me all about him and his family. Sadly, I will be out of town this weekend for the run, but know my CFW family will represent and help a fallen soldier out. Blessings to Gunny and his family. Thanks to all!
