Registration Open For Chattanooga Heroes Run/Walk On July 14

Monday, April 16, 2018

Chattanooga was changed forever on July 16, 2015, following the tragic shootings at the Armed Services Recruiting Center on Lee Highway and the U.S. Naval Operational Support Center and Marine Corps Reserve Center on Amnicola Highway.  Three years later, thousands of supporters will participate in the Third Annual Chattanooga Heroes Run/Walk to honor and remember those who lost their lives as well as the hundreds of responders who worked to protect our city. 

The Chattanooga Heroes Run/Walk, presented by Erlanger’s Level One Trauma Center, will take place on Saturday, July 14, beginning at 8 a.m.  The event will include: 

The five mile loop course will begin at the Naval Operational Support Center and Marine Corps Reserve Center and end at the Hubert Fry Center at the Tennessee RiverPark. Parking will also be available at the RiverPark. 

A Stroller Corral will be reserved at the starting line for those who wish to bring a smaller buddy with them to the event.  Participants can dress their children in red, white and blue and deck out their jogging strollers for the event.  

Participants can join virtually if they are unable to travel to the event.  Deadline to register is July 10, at midnight. 

The one mile kids run will begin at 10 a.m. at the RiverPark.  

Volunteers are needed to assist with pre-run bag packing, set up, race activities, kids run, and post run clean up.  

For more information about the Chattanooga Heroes Run/Walk, how one can volunteer or to register for the event, visit www.chattanoogaheroesrun.com

The families of Gunnery Sgt. Thomas Sullivan, Staff Sgt. David Wyatt, Sgt. Carson Holmquist, Lance Cpl. Squire K. Wells and Logistics Specialist 2nd Class Randall Smith have chosen to use the proceeds from this event to help fund the construction of a permanent memorial space at the RiverPark. 

Erlanger officials thank the following for their time, manpower and support of this special heroes’ tribute: City of Chattanooga, Hamilton County, LIFE FORCE Event Medicine and Rock Creek.

TVA Land Grab

The Georgetown land grab is just ‘Business as Usual’ for TVA. For the past 80 years they’ve shown their stripes in this matter - 170,000 acres seized at LBL, countless acreage taken in the Tennessee River Valley. Land taken for coal and nuclear sites. All by the same play book. All from average people. We want this, you have this, we get this. I worked with TVA as a ... (click for more)

Oh, for decades I’ve know the annual Army-Navy football game, the latest just played this weekend, was special. A half-century ... (click for more)
