About This Event
About Gilda’s Gang\
Gilda’s Gang 5K and 1-Mile Fun Run is an untimed, all-ages, all-abilities fundraising and community building event held at Shelby Park (aka Shelby Bottoms) in East Nashville. All proceeds benefit Gilda\'s Club Middle Tennessee\'s free cancer support program.\
Gilda’s Gang 5K and 1-Mile Family Fun Run is named in honor of Dr. Gail Addlestone, a long-time Gilda’s Club volunteer and staff member who established a half-marathon training program and fundraiser – dubbed “Gilda’s Gang” – that raised more than $1.3 million for Gilda’s Club between 2006 and 2017. Despite losing Gail to metastatic breast cancer in 2007, her legacy of service, hard work and determination lives on through events like this one.\
The event returns for its second year on Saturday, April 2, 2022. Registration is $35 per person with kids 12 and under free.
