Karl to speak at Fast Break breakfast
By Robbi Pickeral
We recently wrote about why UNC coach Roy Williams’ annual Fast Break Against Cancer Breakfast -- which has earned $1.2 million for cancer research at the UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center -- will have some extra meaning this month.
And another meaningful speaker has been added to the Oct. 12 fundraiser.
Denver Nuggets coach George Karl -- a two-time cancer survivor who played for UNC under coach Dean Smith -- has joined the lineup at the eighth annual event, the school announced. According to the news release, Karl “will share his powerful story of survivorship.”
