About This Activity

The 3rd annual Elizabeth's Miles for Melanoma will take place on Saturday, May 2, 2015, at the Wolftever Creek Greenway in Collegdale, TN.  Registration begins at 8:00 am and the run commences at 9:00 am.  This is a family friendly event that can be done as a timed 5K run or a relaxing 1 mile walk. Along the 5K trail which takes you through the beautiful Veterans Memorial Park, you will also encounter a charming area complete with benches, wooden tree swing and duck pond.  The trail continues over a pedestrian bridge and through a scenic wooded area and alongside Wolftever Creek and then loops around and returns runners to the starting point.

All proceeds of this event benefit the Elizabeth R. Smith Melanoma Fund which supports the prevention, awareness and research of melanoma cancer.  To learn more, please visit the foundation's website at www.ElizabethMelanomaFund.org.
