The 5K Run-Walk is a fundraiser that has been designed to support the local educational programs implemented by the Harrisonburg Education Foundation and to celebrate the life of Sherry Anderson. Mrs. Anderson was committed to teaching children in the Harrisonburg, Virginia area. She was also an avid runner. By establishing an event such as this, we not only honor Mrs. Anderson by participating in something she loved to do, but also fund specific programs which benefit the children in the Harrisonburg City Public Schools.
