Nashville CARES has announced that Nashville Mayor David Briley will give opening remarks at its signature community event, the Nashville AIDS Walk and 5K Run. The 27th annual event will take place at Public Square Park downtown on Saturday October 6th.
In addition, radio personality Kage Sanderson—of Coolin’ with Kage fame, from i106.7—will emcee the event. Following the run/walk, a community expo and awards presentation will follow. This event includes a 5K walk or run, plus a one-mile fun run, food trucks, a bounce house for kids and prizes for top runners! The runners’ fee covers a timed chip and t-shirt – and walking is free!
Registration begins at 7:30am, followed by the opening ceremony at 8:15am, and the race will begin at 9am.
The Nashville AIDS Walk and 5K Run is Tennessee’s oldest continuously running HIV/AIDS fundraiser and one of the city’s highest profile events. This year’s goal is to raise $200,000 to help end the HIV/AIDS epidemic in Middle Tennessee.
