13th Annual Forrest Spence 5K
Join the Forrest Spence Fund on August 29th a 5k run, with a 100 yard dash for kids (9 & under) and 1 Mile Fun Run (kids 12 & under). Though we are disappointed to not be hosting a LIVE 5k, we are looking forward to the opportunity to try something new and exciting, as we are moving full steam ahead with a virtual race the weekend of August 29th.
The Forrest Spence Fund is an official 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that was founded in 2007 in memory of Robert Forrest Spence. The mission of the Fund is to assist with the non-medical needs of critically or chronically ill children and their families throughout the Mid-South.
In honor of Forrest, the organization strives to support families dealing with similar difficult situations and to give back to regional children's hospitals like Le Bonheur Children's Hospital, Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt, Children's Hospital at Erlanger in Chattanooga, Baptist Women's Memorial Hospital, and St. Jude Children's Hospital, where the amazing medical staff fights for thousands of children each year.
