Most of us know Woody Durham as the former “voice of the Tar Heels,” or even as the author of his new autobiography, Woody Durham: A Tar Heel Voice, cowritten with Adam Lucas. What many of us don’t realize is that Woody is as much a devoted philanthropist as he is a Tar Heel icon.
Woody and his wife Jean have been guiding forces on behalf of The Ronald McDonald House of Chapel Hill since its inception. The House is a home away from home for families of seriously ill or injured children receiving treatment at area hospitals, providing close access to health care, nourishment, emotional support, and financial relief. Since 1988, the House has supported more than 30,000 families from all 100 North Carolina counties, 39 states, and 21 foreign countries. As co-chair for the organization’s Carolina Kids Classic Golf Tournament for 22 years, Woody raised $3+ million in support of seriously ill children and their families.
Now Woody and Jean are turning their focus to a new way to support the House. Woody Remembers is a highlight collection of 25 of the most exciting moments in Carolina Football and Basketball history, spanning 40 years. On this CD, new introductions by the Hall of Fame broadcaster are paired with his original broadcasts and player interviews, helping listeners relive each victory.
For the first time on one CD, Woody has compiled some of his favorite moments of Tar Heel sports magic, including:
- Roy Williams’s teams stomp two Big Ten rivals for national championships
- Connor Barth kicks it through the uprights to beat #3 ranked Miami
- Michael Jordan’s game winner secures Coach Dean Smith’s first title
- Kelvin Bryant racks up an amazing six TDs against ECU
