RAW Run 5k @ Duke University's East Campus
Mar 23 @ 12:00 pm

Join WRAL-TV Reporter Candace Sweat and Rasheed Wiggins’ Duke family as they kick off the inaugural RAW Run 5k as a way of bringing together old friends & family, and, hopefully, making new ones!

Rasheed A. Wiggins, a Duke University & Fuqua School of Business alum, strongly believed in physical fitness and the power of spending time with loved ones. Wiggins tragically passed away in 2016. A prize was launched in his name to be awarded annually during the Duke Startup Challenge.

Proceeds for the inaugural RAW Run 5k will benefit the Rasheed A. Wiggins Entrepreneurial Prize, which honors a unique emerging entrepreneur and/or startup team at Duke University each year. The winner(s) represents the persona of a man just as unique. It was created in honor of Rasheed A. Wiggins, a creative and talented marketing executive with an innate passion for entrepreneurship.
