On July 4, 2015, the first annual Dash to the Door, a 5K/3-mile Fun Run/Walk, was held to raise funds for the Beersheba Springs Medical Clinic. Over 100 runners and walkers gathered for the trip to the Great Stone Door entrance and back. There was a great festive atmosphere to the whole event and between race registrations and additional donations, close to $15,000 was raised. Thanks to everyone who participated!
The Beersheba Springs Medical Clinic is a not-for-profit medical facility established by and for the community of Beersheba Springs, Tennessee.
On behalf of the more than 1,000 mountain people of Beersheba Springs and surrounding communities who have benefited from the healthcare provided by the Clinic over the past three years, we express our deep appreciation for the support that has allowed us to provide this resource, especially for the many with desperate illnesses who have nowhere else to turn. Our support has come from well over 500 personal donations, as well as grants from the Sequatchie Valley Electric Cooperative and the Community Fund of the South Cumberland Plateau.
Last year the Community Fund of the South Cumberland Plateau made a very generous grant to the Clinic, which allowed us to hire a much-needed Medical Assistant, Cherry Rankin. We are also thrilled to welcome Linda Elrod, PAC, a gifted and dedicated clinician, who is volunteering with our team. See “About Us” to find out more about our staff.
