Join Team Vanderbilt for Race for the Cure

Join Team Vanderbilt as we walk, run, push a baby carriage or stroll with our dogs during this year’s Greater Nashville Race for the Cure. The annual breast cancer fundraising race/walk will be held Saturday, Oct. 29, at Maryland Farms in Brentwood.

Vanderbilt has formed its own race/walk team and is inviting staff, faculty, students and the community to participate in the event. Those who like to snooze on Saturdays can “Sleep in for the Cure” and make an online donation.

The 5K course begins and ends near the Maryland Farms YMCA and there is a full morning of activities.

6 a.m. – Race Village and Survivor Tent opens

8:15 a.m. – Opening ceremonies and Service of Hope

8:30 a.m. – Survivor parade

9 a.m. – 5K race begins

9:05 a.m. – 5K/1 mile walk begins
