Pirate Nurse 5k fundraising for ECU College of Nursing scholarships

GREENVILLE, N.C. (WITN) – A 3.1-mile race hosted by East Carolina University College of Nursing is raising money for scholarships for nursing students.

The Pirate Nurse 5K is on April 13th. The ECU College of Nursing is looking to get as many participants as possible in hopes of giving nursing students every financial advantage for their education.

The university says proceeds benefit nursing student scholarships which will be awarded during the annual scholarship ceremony.

The race is a certified 5K course that participants can do both in-person and virtually, and awards for first and second place in age brackets for in-person and virtual participants will be presented.

The course paves a path through ECU’s Health Science Campus.

The registration fee up until April 6th will be $45. Students will pay $35, getting a $10 discount after registering online.

Those interested will be able to register on race day between 7:30 and 8:30 a.m. at the College of Nursing on ECU’s campus. A kids’ run will start at 9 a.m., and the 5K race will start at 9:15 a.m.
