"Working for God on earth doesn't pay much... but, His retirement plan is out of this world. In Wilson County, we are blessed with folks who are storing up treasures in heaven – thanks to the selfless efforts of all of the Sherry’s Run sponsoring partners, participants and volunteers that make a difference in the lives of local cancer victims,” said Gary Whitaker, Sherry’s Run board member. “I have said over and over, if we can help one person in the whole world it will be worth it; because, one person is the whole world to somebody. This is at the core of our mission, helping one person at a time.”
Mark your calendar and make a commitment to become involved this year.
The mission of Sherry’s Run is to benefit those affected by cancer, with an emphasis on colon cancer.
Sherry’s Run is a 501 (c) (3) organization. It was started in memory of Sharon “Sherry” Patterson Whitaker who died at the age of 44 from colon cancer. Donations are tax deductible and can be made online. Funds received serve also to help those locally who suffer with cancer.
