Running For Hope

On October 3, 2009 at 8a.m., Vol State will host the 5K Fun Run/Walk. This will be the first time that Vol State has hosted this event. Proceeds will benefit Faces of Hope Children’s Therapy Center in Gallatin, TN.

The PTA (Physical Therapy Assistant) program is sponsoring the Fun Run/Walk. Pamela Saladino is an instructor for the PTA program here at Vol State, and is helping to organize the event. “This event is open to the public and is very family friendly. Children are welcome to walk with their parents,” Pamela said. Strollers are welcome as well. Pamela said that there will be events for children in addition to the Fun Run/Walk.

This is a charity event and is not timed. Those who register by Monday September 20 pay only fifteen dollars, and get a free T-shirt. “After Monday, registration is twenty dollars, and T-shirts won’t be available because the orders will have to be put in,” said Pamela. There will be massages available for five dollars following the race, and these proceeds will also go to Faces of Hope. Those who register will be entered in a drawing with prizes being given away that day as well.

Anyone interested in signing up for this event should contact Pamela Saladino at 615-230-3336 or email her at
