Saturday, September 11, 8:00a.m.
623 W. Main Street, Lebanon, TN

An ongoing desire to serve, comfort and help. These are some of the qualities that caused a 44-year-old wife and mother of two to touch the lives of people in her community, and they continue to motivate others to finish a race that she began. There was an outpouring of love and appreciation by those who knew Sherry.  A few weeks after her passing, a friend approached Sherry’s husband with an idea about honoring her friend that could also help fight the deadly disease that took her life.  He talked the idea over with his sons and Sherry’s parents. That evening he ran into another friend, who immediately asked to help. The group’s desire to take action led to a 5K run/walk to benefit the research and treatment of colon cancer, and Sherry’s Run was born.
