Train with Gilda’s Gang Nashville to Walk or Run the Country Music Half Marathon on April 26, 2014.

Gilda’s Gang 2014 is a half marathon training program sponsored by Vanderbilt University Medical Center and is a fundraiser for Gilda’s Club Nashville.

Inspired by Dr. Gail Addlestone, Gilda’s Gang is a great way to get fit and give back to the men, women and children in our community who are living with cancer.

Interested and registered participants can speak with coaches and hear more about the training program, as well as local experts on training footwear and apparel, stretching for injury prevention and nutrition tips on workout diet.

The program includes:

• Free access to Vanderbilt Dayani Center beginning Jan. 1
• Fitness specialists to lead group run/walks on Saturday at 8 a.m.
• Personalized program (run, walk, run/walk) with weekly workout schedule
• Team discount code for half marathon registration fee
• Personalized online fundraising page
