The Crumley House will host one of its most significant fundraisers, the Joggin’ for the Noggin! 5K Run/Walk presented by ETSU Health and Food City, on Saturday, March 26, coinciding with the nationally recognized Brain Injury Awareness Month.
Touted as one of the most scenic 5K events in the region, the run/walk takes place at The Crumley House (300 Urbana Road, Limestone, TN) beginning at 10 AM. With a majestic Appalachian Mountain backdrop, it’s the perfect fun/fit event to usher in Spring. In addition to the run/walk, the event includes an event t-shirt for pre-registered competitors as well as awards for division winners. Professional race management and electronic timing will be provided by We Run Events.
“The Joggin’ for the Noggin 5K is one of our most important fundraisers of the year,” said Guynn Edwards, Crumley House Executive Director. “As we’ve mentioned before, the last two years of dealing with the COVID virus and its variants have significantly impacted our fundraising efforts, so that obviously makes our 2022 5K event as important as ever.”
Due to ongoing cases of COVID throughout the region, the customary pancake breakfast will not return this year. However, pre-packaged food and beverage items will be provided following the completion of the event.
The Crumley House is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that provides services to those who have acquired and survived a brain injury.
Edwards adds, “According to statistics from The Brain Injury Association of America, there are currently 5.3 million children and adults in the United States living with some type of brain injury. That’s roughly one in every 60 people.
“Be it our residential program, our adult day program, service coordination or simply our day-to-day operation, every dollar counts toward us being able to enhance the lives of those who encounter and are living with a brain injury. Our Joggin’ for the Noggin! 5K is just one way for individuals to fellowship and take part in a fun activity while supporting a worthy cause.”
Early registration is only $25 per competitor and is now available online. On and after March 19, registration moves to $30. Day-of registration also will be available on-site at The Crumley House beginning at 8:30 AM. T-shirts will be available for those who pre-register. Any remaining shirts will be available first come, first served on event day.
