Registration Is Open For The 18th Annual Sherry’s Run 5K Run/Walk
Registration is now open for the 18th annual Sherry’s Run 5K Run/Walk to benefit Sherry’s Hope. The event is scheduled for Saturday, September 11 at 8am! Whether you are a runner or prefer walking, like getting up early or would rather sleep until noon, there is a way you can participate in the Sherry’s Run 5K!
If you are a runner and want an official time, register as a chip timed runner. Chip timed runners will receive a performance style event shirt as part of their race registration fee. Not a runner? Not a problem! Lots of people enjoy taking the course at their own pace. Simply register as a participant (no chip registration). Participants (no chip registrations) will receive an event t-shirt as part of their race registration fee. If you can’t attend in person or don’t want to get out early on a Saturday morning, the virtual/sleep-in registration option is perfect for you! Sign up as a virtual/sleep-in registration and the event t-shirt will be mailed to you after the event!
No matter how you plan to participate in the Sherry’s Run 5K event, it is easy to register! Just click here to register online. You may also print a registration form here, complete it and mail it to Sherry’s Hope, P.O. Box 8, Lebanon, TN 37088. Registration forms are also available at the Sherry’s Hope office, 110 Babb Drive in Lebanon.
While you don’t have to be part of a team to participate in the event, teams are a fun way to participate in the Sherry’s Run 5K! Some local businesses, organizations and churches form a team, other teams are formed in honor or in memory of someone and some are just a group of friends. Whatever the reason, teams are a great way for a group to work together to support friends and neighbors who are fighting cancer.
It’s easy to form a team for the Sherry’s Run 5K! The team captain will create their team and choose their team name when they register online. Team members will be able to simply pick the team name from a drop down menu when they register for the run. Each time a team member registers, an email will be sent to the team captain.
“The Sherry’s Run 5K is an amazing event benefitting so many people in Wilson County and surrounding communities who are facing a financial hardship due to a cancer diagnosis and treatment,” said Scott Jasper, Sherry’s Hope board member. “The Sherry’s Run 5K is the largest fundraiser for Sherry’s Hope. This is a great time to come out and support our friends and neighbors; it’s the support of the community that makes this event successful. Your participation gives hope to so many people right in our own community who are fighting cancer.”
