Nearly 100 staff members put “stake your claim” in action Monday as they prepared information packets for the annual Thunder Road Marathon, a fundraiser that benefits St. Jude Children’s Hospital.

UNC Charlotte employees prepare race packets for the annual Thunder Road marathon, a fundraiser that benefits a number of local charities, including St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. According to Annette Price, Staff Council secretary, more than 140 faculty and staff members have signed up to volunteer.

 "This is a great opportunity for faculty and staff members to use their community service leave benefit in support of a worthwhile cause," said Price. "It's also a way for us to stake our claim in support of the greater Charlotte region."
