Skinner Award

The Skinner Award is presented each year to the team that raises the most money, 100% of which goes to UNC Children’s Hospital and childhood cancer research. It’s named in memory of Buzz Skinner who lost his battle with cancer in 2010.

Buzz was the life of the party and a friend to all. He loved his family more than anything but fishing probably came in a close second! His competitive nature is one of the reasons that this award is named after him; he did not like to lose! The funds raised from this friendly competition has become an integral part of the overall amount raised.
