Roy Williams is one of the most beloved sports figures in the nation. He retired from the University of North Carolina on April 1, 2021, with the third-most wins by a Division I head coach and the sixth-highest winning percentage in college basketball history.
Williams grew up in the Biltmore neighborhood in Asheville and attended T.C. Roberson High. He played on Carolina’s freshman team in 1968-69, earned a bachelor’s degree in education in 1972 and a master’s degree in teaching in 1973.
For nearly two decades, Roy Williams’ Fast Break Against Cancer has supported UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center. To date, this event has raised more than $3 million for research and patient care in Chapel Hill. Now, as a resident of Flat Rock, Coach Williams is supporting the Pardee Hospital Foundation’s efforts to provide the best cancer care to the residents of Western North Carolina.
Coach Williams was chosen as our Women Helping Women speaker because of his personal experience supporting loved ones with breast cancer. We are united in the common experience of dealing with a cancer diagnosis personally or with a loved one, and overcoming it as a team.
