UM Faculty and Staff Experience the Heat

The NBA champion Miami Heat recently welcomed University of Miami employees to UM Heat Day at the American Airlines Arena. University of Miami faculty and staff who made their 2013 United Way contribution received complimentary tickets and enjoyed the opportunity to watch the Miami Heat in action on October 19. Team UM United Way ambassadors were also recognized on the jumbotron for their hard work and dedication during the 2012 and 2013 campaigns.

Team UM United Way got a head start on the campaign as members of the Department of Radiology participated in the UPS 5K on September 7 in Coral Gables – an event in which UM was recognized as a bronze-level sponsor. Ty Subhawong, assistant professor of clinical radiology, finished third in the 30-34 male age group. Photos of the team at the UPS 5K may be viewed here.
