Registration is open for the UNC Kidney Center's Kidney Kare 5K, which will take place on Saturday, March 17 in Carrboro, NC.

Participants of all abilities and ages are invited to sign up for the event, in which they can run or walk, win prizes, and have the chance to help support programs at the UNC Kidney Center.

Children will have an opportunity to compete in the "Kids Kare" half-mile event, where all participants will receive a finisher ribbon.

This year's event will feature a team competition, where participants may register as part of a team. Each team will be awarded 2 points for each participant (or volunteer) and 1 point for each dollar raised. The team with the most points will win a "Top Team BBQ" from The Meat House in Chapel Hill.

The event will start and finish at McDougle Middle School located at 900 Old Fayetteville Rd in Carrboro, NC.
