Students Run 5K Race in Memory of Student Killed

MARCH 25, 2006 -- It was a beautiful morning to go for a run. Many did just that on Saturday in honor of a former UNCW student.

In 2003, Danny McGregor, a student at UNCW and a member of the Delta Tau Delta fraternity, was killed in a car accident.

Members of the McGregor family and the fraternity kicked off the McGregor 5K race at UNCW. About 60 runners and walkers signed up for the race. McGregor's parents say they're thrilled to see such a turnout three years later.

Proceeds from this annual race go toward a scholarship fund that's awarded to a Delta Tau Delta student.
