07 May Celebrate SURVIVORS 5k sponsored by the American Association for Cancer Research Foundation Runners for Research
The Women Survivors Alliance is overjoyed to announce the 2015 Celebrate SURVIVORS 5K Walk/Run is now sponsored by our friends at the American Association for Cancer Research Foundation Runners for Research.
The Celebrate Survivors 5K is our signature walk/race event which will occur on Sunday, June 7th, 2015 – National Cancer Survivors Day in downtown Nashville beginning at 9:00am at Public Square Park. This emotional event involves not just the survivors, but their families and supporting friends as a means of not just celebrating their life, but also provides a giving back opportunity. For the survivor, it is about celebrating their life accomplishments, whether it be completing treatment or honoring the family members of those who have stood by them during their diagnosis. Organizations and individuals form teams and raise money for the Women Survivors Alliance. Race proceeds are applied directly to the WSA educational programs.
The Celebrate Survivors 5K Walk/Run welcomes participants of all ages and fitness levels, from amateurs to elite athletes.
PLEASE NOTE! This is the Sunday prior to CMA Week in Nashville and hotel rooms are scarce. However, there is a DISCOUNTED ROOM BLOCK available to all racers/walkers at Gaylord Opryland Resort (16 minutes from the starting line) where you may also pick up your race bibs in advance of the race.
