“Pink Heals” is a national nonprofit made up of public servants who “care enough to wear pink” in support of women battling cancer. Its mission is to raise funds and awareness for groups like Sherry’s Run, which supports cancer patients in its own community. 

Pink Heals will be at the Providence Marketplace in Mt. Juliet on Aug. 23 from 5:30-8:30 p.m. The public to come out and sign the pink fire trucks, shop for pink merchandise, and be a part of supporting cancer patients in Wilson County.  

“Pink will heal as long as we do it in service to our women and what they mean to us in our communities, not just because they are sick or struggling with adversity. For if we use illness as the sole motivation for action, once the sickness is gone, so is the reason for coming together,” said Dave Graybill, retired firefighter and founder of the Pink Heals movement. 

“This partnership just makes sense,” said Tiffy Clemons, executive board member for Sherry’s Run. “We just want to be a part of bringing hope to our neighbors who are battling cancer, and that’s exactly what the Pink Heals movement is all about. We are so thankful for this opportunity to work together in service.

“Don’t stop there. Let your support for cancer patients continue. Come join us as we make a difference in the lives of those affected by cancer right here in our community.”

The 11th annual Sherry’s Run is scheduled for Sept. 13 at 8 a.m. at 623 W. Main St. in Lebanon. 

“Mark your calendar and make a commitment to join us,” Clemons said. 

Registration is available at sherrysrun.org. 

“Your support allows us to assist cancer patients 52 weeks a year with gas, groceries, utility bills, housing payments, prescription assistance, health insurance premiums, medical bills and colonoscopy assistance,” Clemons said.
