Since 2007 the Methodist University Physician Assistant Program has embarked on many activities to benefit the healthcare community of Fayetteville and beyond. As another year approaches, the MU Physician Assistant has partnered with the MU Women’s Basketball Program to host the Play4K Cancer Awareness 5K Run/Walk, which will be held on Saturday, February 17, 2024 at 9:00 am on the campus of Methodist University. Since February 2006, the women’s basketball program, in conjunction with the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA), hosts a Cancer Awareness, or ‘Play 4Kay’ game to benefit the Cape Fear Valley Health Foundation’s Friends of the Cancer Center and the Kay Yow Cancer Fund. Our donation will not only assist with cancer research, but also provides local funding for the uninsured to receive free mammograms. All proceeds from the run will be donated to the Play4Kay event.
