Every November, in conjunction with National Diabetes Month, MSFAS sponsors the Sugar Run 5K. This race, chaired by MSFAS’s Dr. Julie Kate Webster along with endocrinologist, Dr. Kashif Latif, benefits research to cure diabetes. The Sugar Run will be held at Johnson Park in Collierville, TN on November 8th, 2014. This is a family event, which starts with a kids’ race and ends with the 5K. Every child wins a trophy, and 5K winners receive a medal. Also, every runner receives a free long-sleeved t-shirt. It is a fun-filled event with a live drum band, music, moon bounces, and food from local vendors. Over the past 8 years, the Sugar Run has raised over $85,000. Support diabetes research by joining our efforts at the Sugar Run 5K this year! You can register online at www.racesonline.com.
