Buckeye Drugs Makes Donation to Sherry’s Run 

Buckeye Drugs in Lebanon recently presented a $5,000 check to the Sherry’s Run organization as part of their sponsorship for the upcoming Sherry’s Run 5K Run/Walk.

“We see first-hand the impact a cancer diagnosis has on someone,” said Cory McDonald, pharmacist and owner of Buckeye Drugs. “The Sherry’s Run organization is a tremendous resource for anyone in our community who is battling cancer. We have been a Sherry’s Run sponsor since 2010 because we know so many people affected by cancer and we know the great work Sherry’s Run does to help people in our community. Our sponsorship is one way we give back and help others.”

“With the support of so many great businesses like Buckeye Drugs, we are able to help so many people in Wilson County and surrounding communities who are facing a financial hardship due to a cancer diagnosis and treatment,” said Pat Lawson, executive director of the Sherry’s Run organization. “We are so thankful for Cory and his amazing staff at Buckeye Drugs. We greatly appreciate their continued sponsorship of the Sherry’s Run 5K Run/Walk.”

Sherry’s Run, Wilson County’s largest grassroots cancer fundraising effort, is a non-profit, Christian organization that has helped hundreds of individuals and their families during some of the hardest times of their lives. With community support and involvement, Sherry’s Run helps members of our community year round through support groups; assistance with utilities, housing, prescriptions, medical bills, gas and groceries; and colonoscopy assistance.

Faith, courage, optimism and a desire to help others were qualities that defined Sharon “Sherry” Patterson Whitaker. Both before and after the energetic wife and mother was diagnosed with colon cancer, the impression she made on her family, friends and community was undeniable. While her battle in the flesh was lost in 2004, the spirit she had shown throughout life continues to touch more lives every day. Because of Sherry’s Run, a 5K run/walk benefit organized in Sherry’s memory, area cancer victims and their families can make strides toward becoming cancer survivors, and researchers are a small step closer to stopping the disease for good.
