The familiar lime green bows that have become a symbol of Sherry's Run and the hope it provides to locals battling cancer will soon begin popping up around Wilson County, and new this year, the bows can offer those with a little social media savvy the chance to win prizes.
Those who display the green bows are encouraged to take a photo of them, then share the photo on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. That's all it takes to be entered into a drawing to win free Sherry's Run merchandise.
The bows are available now for a $10 donation. They can be purchased when registering for the 13th annual Sherry's run either online at www.sherrysrun.org or by paper registration form. The bows can also be ordered by contacting the Sherry's Run office at (615) 925-2592 or via e-mail at email@example.com.
