Since 2015, Dash to the Door, a 3 mile walk or 5 K run through Beersheba Springs has been our annual fundraiser. This year it will be a hybrid event— both virtual and in person—, so that anyone can participate from any location. Sign up here:
Beersheba Springs is perched on the bluffs of the South Cumberland Plateau and is surrounded by natural attractions of TN’s largest state park with waterfalls, scenic panoramas, walking trails and rock formations including the Great Stone Door, our race’s namesake. For generations, many have come to Beersheba Springs for the beauty and unique community found there.
Located in one of the poorest counties of Tennessee, many local residents can’t afford medical care. In 2010 the community established the Beersheba Springs Medical Clinic, a non-profit facility to provide medical services at no cost to an average of 1,200 patients per year from more than 17 counties. The clinic is supported by donations and grants. A dental clinic was added in June 2019 bringing much needed services to the community. Even with the pandemic, the clinic found ways to remain open and safely serve those in need of care.
Join us this year virtually or at the live event by registering to run or walk. The fee is $10 but additional donations are happily accepted. Register with family and friends and plan your own walk or run in your favorite community or join us in person. Submit your time and send us a selfie. Facebook or Instagram
