The seventh annual 5K and 1-mile fun run/walk for Tyler’s Treehouse is coming up next month.
The event raises money for a foundation in the name of Tyler Scott, who died of brainstem glioma at the age of 5. Proceeds will go toward research of the disease at St. Jude Children’s Hospital.
The event is Aug. 8 from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. It is in the Olde Georgetowne/Sharon Hills area off Sharon Road, and is followed by a pool party at the Olde Georgetowne neighborhood pool with food donated by sponsors.
Find more information on the charity at its website, www.tylerstreehouse.org. For more information on the event, contact Donna Johnson at rodogo@-carolina.rr.com.
