Panthers coach Ron Rivera will be the official starter for Saturday morning’s Purple Stride 5K, a fundraiser for pancreatic cancer.
The race will be held at Marshall Park with registration at 7 a.m. and the race beginning at 8:30 a.m.
Rivera’s older brother, Mickey, died from the disease in the summer after a two-year battle.
