The highlight of the 13th annual Sherry’s Run event came after the runners had crossed the finish line and the national anthem had been sung.

As thousands of supporters gathered around the stage, Executive Board Chair, Tonyia Stockton, announced an unprecedented gift from Drs. Neil Price, Mark Miller, Brett Inglis, and Elizabeth Lindsey of the Lebanon Endoscopy Center, as well as St. Thomas Gastroenterology of Lebanon.

Drs. Price and Miller completed the run just moments before presenting the Executive

Board with a check for $300,000 to be given over the course of 5 years. The gift was given in memory of Dr. Donald Cole, local physician who passed in April of this year after dedicating the past 20 years to improving the quality of healthcare for the Wilson County community.

“Dr. Cole build a tremendous practice here in this community and we are honored to continue that work. Sherry’s Run meant so much to him.”

“Words cannot express the gratitude we feel for this donation,” says Stockton. “This gift will impact thousands of lives for years to come.”

The mission of Sherry’s Run: Through faith and love create an environment for all those

affected by cancer, which provides hope, knowledge, assistance, support and compassion.

An unprecedented gift was given after runners finished the race at the 13th annual Sherry’s Run on Saturday, September 10th, in Lebanon.
