THANK YOU SURVIVORville 2015 and Celebrate SURVIVORS 5K!
We’re transforming survivorship from a MOOD to a MOVEMENT – one step at a time!
The 3nd Annual Celebrate Survivors 5K Walk/Run will do just that: it celebrates survivorship as well as honors those who lost their cancer battle. With every step, we raise awareness for survivor issues and can raise significant funds to support our mission of EDUCATION, MOTIVATION AND LIFE APPLICATION!
Date/Time: Sunday, June 7 2015 National Cancer Survivors Day
Location: Public Square Park – Downtown Nashville
The Celebrate SURVIVORS 5k Walk/Run is sponsored by our friends at the American Association for Cancer Research Foundation Runners for Research
This year, The Women Survivors Alliance is overjoyed to announce the 2015 Celebrate SURVIVORS 5K Walk/Run is now sponsored by our friends at the American Association for Cancer Research Foundation Runners for Research.
The Celebrate Survivors 5K is our signature walk/race event which will occur on Sunday, June 7th, 2015 – National Cancer Survivors Day – during SURVIVORville! This emotional event involves not just the survivors, but their families and supporting friends as a means of not just celebrating their life, but also provides a giving back opportunity. For the survivor, it is about celebrating their life accomplishments, whether it be completing treatment or honoring the family members of those who have stood by them during their diagnosis. Organizations and individuals form teams and raise money for the Women Survivors Alliance. Race proceeds are applied directly to the WSA educational programs.
The Celebrate Survivors 5K Walk/Run welcomes participants of all ages and fitness levels, from amateurs to elite athletes.
Start forming your teams now! Online registration and fundraising ARE OPEN!
PLEASE NOTE! This is the Sunday prior to CMA Week in Nashville and hotel rooms are scarce. However, there is a DISCOUNTED ROOM BLOCK available to all racers/walkers at Gaylord Opryland Resort (16 minutes from the starting line) where you may also pick up your race bibs in advance of the race. To grab a room, please register atwww.SURVIVORville.org or you may call Gaylord Opryland Hotel directly at (615) 889-1000 and use the PROMO CODE “SURVIVORVILLE”.

Are donations and registration fees tax-deductible? Donations, absolutely! Registration fees are not.
How do I raise money for my team? There are many ways. From door to door campaigns to social media campaigns – you’re limited only by your imagination! Visit www.crowdrise.com and search Women Survivors Alliance and Celebrate Survivors 5K. Set up your own page and GO TO IT! We are so excited about this event – we know you’ll have fun.
The 5K looks like it is connected to the 3rd Annual SURVIVORville. I am not participating in the convention, but may I bring my entire family to the race? Of course! While our 5K funds benefit women survivor programs, we welcome individuals and families to support a survivor they know, raise money on their behalf and join us for a morning of celebration with the survivor attendees from the convention. Mix and mingle. Share their love and stories of triumph. Be on hand when many of the attendees themselves cross the finish line, looking the cancer beast in the face and saying, “This is MY 2nd ACT!”
May I bring my dog to the event? We love dogs, but discourage their presence on the race route for safety reasons. Of course, service dogs are always welcome.
May I wear my inline skates or ride my scooter or skateboard on the race route? We’re so sorry, but for safety reasons, skates, skateboards and scooters are prohibited.
Where and when is packet pickup? Pre-race packet pick-up will take place on Friday and Saturday, June 5 and 6, 2015, from 10 am to 6 pm in the Tennessee Lobby of Gaylord Opryland Resort. See a SURVIVORville staff member for more information.
Interested in serving on a committee for the Celebrate Survivors 5K? Please contact Susan Jett at firstname.lastname@example.org. Or call the WSA offices at 615-719-0751.
PLEASE NOTE: The RACE day Pre-Race Packet Pick-Up Tent will be open at 5:00 a.m. and the official race start is 9:00 a.m. CST.
2015 RACE RESULTS!
We’ll see YOU at the finish line!
