Sponsored by: Vanderbilt Naval ROTC / NROTC Alumni Association and the ASMBA (Armed Services Mutual Benefit Association) STAR Foundation
Now, more than ever, our nation’s warriors deserve our thanks, and our help. Whether it’s your first run, you’re training for a marathon, or you just want to join with friends, co-workers or family and have some fun, you can do it AND make a difference in the lives of our military, veterans and their families when you join with a field of over 700 participants in support of our nation’s heroes! A full 100% of the net proceeds from the run will benefit both the Tennessee Fisher House and the ASMBA STAR Foundation (a 501 (c) (3) tax-exempt charity that supports wounded warriors, veterans and their families).
This inaugural event will feature R.A.C.E. chip timing and management services for all runners, special recognition awards for both individual and team competitors, refreshments and a limited edition t-shirt! Sponsors and local vendors will provide special sports coupons and snacks to all participants, all in support of our heroes, many of whom are battling the physical and mental disabilities that the ravages of war bring.
