Registration is now open for the 14th annual Sherry's Run 5K Run/Walk, and organizers say they need the community's help to give hope to hundreds of area families who will need assistance in the fight against cancer in the coming year.
Sherry's Run helps relieve the financial burden cancer patients face as well as offering emotional support and hope. To take part in the event - billed as the county's second largest community event behind the Wilson County Fair - visit www.sherrysrun.org and click on the 'Register' button at the top of the page. Registration forms may also be printed directly from the website.
After registering, participants can then form a team by visiting the website, clicking on 'The Race' and then clicking on 'Teams' for complete details. Participants may also register and form a team at the Sherry's Run office on the following Tuesdays from 4 until 6 p.m.: July 25, August 8, August 22 and September 5. The on-site registration will also offer the opportunity to make a donation, shop the non-profit's retail options or to pick up a green bow to display as Sherry's Run once again seeks to "Paint the Town Green."
The 14th annual Sherry's Run is scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 9, at 8 a.m. at 623 West Main Street in Lebanon.
Community support allows the non-profit to assist cancer patients throughout the year with groceries, gas, utility bills, housing payments, prescription assistance, health insurance premiums, medical bills and colonoscopy assistance.
