Giving Hope Through Sherry's Run

Cancer.  A diagnosis that no one ever wants to receive but one in three of us will and is the toughest thing most of us will ever face.  If you’ve been diagnosed with cancer, or a loved one has, could you imagine facing it alone and without needed resources to help you?  No!  You’d hope for a team of people in your corner supporting you every step of the way.  Sherry’s Run makes the connection between the wonderful, giving members of our community who want to help and those who are hurting and need assistance while battling cancer.  With donations from here in our community, Sherry’s Run supporters are truly making a difference in the lives of our neighbors.  When you can’t run the race that is before you – we will carry you.  That’s what neighbors do – and that is one of the many reasons that Sherry’s Run is so important.  What started as a love for one woman has turned into an explosion of grace for this community.
