ECU sorority to host 5K race, pasta dinner

The Kappa Delta Chapter at East Carolina University will host a “Shamrock ‘N’ Run” 5K run and walk to raise funds for Prevent Child Abuse America on March 1, beginning at Greenville Town Common.

A post-race party will include refreshments, music and an awards ceremony.

A pre-race Pump-up Pasta Dinner will be held on Feb. 28, the evening before the race, from 5 – 8 p.m. at the Greenville Masonic Lodge near the Provence apartments.

The event is the sorority’s 6th annual fundraiser for Prevent Child Abuse America, and the group raised $20,000 last year.  This year’s goal is $25,000. Local proceeds benefit TEDI BEAR Advocacy Center in Greenville.

Registration for the race is available at or by contacting a member of the Kappa Delta sorority at ECU. Race fees are $15 and T-shirts from the event are $10. On race day, registration will begin at 7:30 a.m.

Tickets for the Feb. 28 all-you-can-eat pasta meal are $5 before Feb. 27 and $8 at the door.
