Show off your green for Sherry’s Run

Staff Reports • Updated Jul 21, 2016 at 1:00 PM

Lime-green bows have become a symbol of hope for the Wilson County community. 

They are bright reminders of neighbors who fight for each other in the darkest times. For Sherry’s Run, the goal is a lime-green pop of color throughout the community to remind everyone to support those neighbors who battle cancer. 

Bows are currently on sale to support Sherry’s Run in Wilson County.

As a new twist this year, Sherry’s Run volunteers ask the community to show off those lime-green bows on social media. Simply take a photo of a green bow or bows on a car, house, mailbox or wherever they are displayed. Then, share the photo with Sherry’s Run on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram and be entered in a drawing to win free Sherry’s Run merchandise.

Green bows are on sale for $10 each. They may be purchased when registering for the 13th annual Sherry’s Run at sherrysrun.org or through paper registration form. A “Paint the Town Green” bow order form may be printed at sherrysrun.org and mailed. Bows may also be ordered by contacting Sherry’s run at 615-925-2592 or info@sherrysrun.org.

Green bows may be picked up Aug. 9, Aug. 23 and Sept. 6 from 4-6 p.m. at the Sherry’s Run office at 110 Babb Drive in Lebanon.

Bows may also be picked up Sept. 8 from 11 a.m. until 7 p.m., Sept. 9 from 11 a.m. until 7 p.m. and Sept. 10 from 6:30-8 a.m. at the Sherry’s Run event site at 623 W. Main St. in Lebanon.

All of the proceeds from the purchase of green bows stay in Wilson County and the surrounding communities to help neighbors who fight cancer.

The 13th annual Sherry’s Run is scheduled for Sept. 10 at 8 a.m. at 623 W. Main St. in Lebanon. Registration is currently open at sherrysrun.org. 

Support allows Sherry’s Run to assist cancer patients 52 weeks a year with gas, groceries, utility bills, housing payments, prescription assistance, health insurance premiums, medical bills and colonoscopy assistance.

To learn more about Sherry’s Run, call 615-925-2592. To refer someone who might qualify for assistance, call 615-925-9932 or visit sherrysrun.org.
