2017 Sara Walker Run

2017 Sara Walker Run is in the past.

"Live for Today 5K" benefiting The Sara Walker Foundation
Sunday, Sept. 24 2017 at 3:30 p.m.  
Allen Arena - Lipscomb University

The 2017 Sara Walker Run benefits the The Sara Walker Foundation that was established to “continue Sara Walker’s ministry of encouragement and outreach in the Name of Jesus.” 

Located at Lipscomb University on Sunday, Sept. 24, members of Walker’s family invites the community to run in the "Live for today 5K," a casual and fun race, to raise funds and awareness of the impact of this foundation. The 5K course will begin at the front of Lipscomb’s Allen Arena and will continue around the perimeter of the university.

Registration for this event begins at 2:30 p.m., and the race beginning at 3:30 p.m. Following the run is a children’s worship gathering at 4:30 p.m. at Lipscomb’s Flatt Amphitheater. A community worship service will begin at 5 p.m. in Bison Square.

Proceeds of this event support The Sara Foundation's medical and educational programs by sending doctors, nurses, teachers and volunteers to Malawi, Africa to help meet basic needs of the community and faithfully serve others, the way Walker did throughout her life. This year's goal is to have 1,000 walkers and runners to raise $125,000.

The registration fee is $35 for adults, $15 for students and $15 for children 12 and under, and includes a Sara Walker Foundation t-shirt. Children 12 and under without a t-shirt can participate for free. To register, click here.
