Lt. Bob Harrison was a man who dedicated half of his life to serving his neighbors through law enforcement. Though he was a highly decorated officer, he was best known for his spirit of kindness and his excellent sense of humor.
The lifeblood of the annual Sherry’s Run 5K Run/Walk event is truly in the overwhelming support from the local community.

Superheroes come in all shapes and sizes and can sometimes be found in the most unlikely of places. Whit Robertson, a Lebanon, Tennessee teen, lived a life marked by care and concern for those around him and truly made a heroic impact.
One of the most special elements of the annual Sherry’s Run 5K Run/Walk event is the balloon release. Participants at the event attach the names of their loved ones who have fought or are still fighting cancer and, often tearfully, watch as those names float upward in a beautiful tribute. Many of these names have been found in other states and can be very emotional for the family members of those found.
Service to God, country and family. This sums up the life and legacy of Dr. Donald Cole of Lebanon, Tennessee. Whether he was serving his country as a Lt. Colonel in the Army or serving as a medical missionary in the jungles of Ecuador, Dr. Cole’s life was marked by service to others. Since moving to Wilson County 20 years ago, he made it his priority to raise the quality of health care for the people in this community.
Dr. Christina Steger has become a household name in the Wilson County community. When asking around town for the best pediatrician, her name was the first you would hear for many years. In fact, many of her patients were second generation. After “growing up with her,” many locals chose her to see their own children, as well.

What makes Sherry’s Run different from every other 5K event? Heart. So many of the people who participate in this unique grassroots event are there because they love someone who is battling or who has battled cancer. This is most evident in the spirit of the teams. Without the teams, Sherry’s Run would not be what it is.
Since 2002, the Shamrock Society of Lebanon, Tennessee has organized a fundraising event known as The Low Country Boil. A desire to help their neighbors battling cancer and have fun while doing it is what has fueled this group through the years, and that same spirit carries on this year with a new twist. On Friday, February 5, the Shamrock Society invites you to a new event called Mardi Gras at the Capitol.
We all want to find it. That perfect gift for that special person. The one we know is just going to light up their face when they open it. What if you could give someone the greatest gift they have received? What if you could give someone the gift of LIFE this year?

We are here to stand with them; to fight with them.”
