Gilda's Gang 2016

at Gilda's Club Nashville

Gilda’s Club Nashville will offer a half-marathon training program, with Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center serving as the presenting sponsor. This year marks the 11th anniversary of Gilda’s Gang™, to help prepare participants to run or walk the Rock ‘n’ Roll Nashville ½ Marathon on April 30th; and an opportunity to give back to men, women and children in Middle Tennessee who are living with cancer.

Gilda’s Gang began in 2006 as the inspiration of local pediatrician Dr. Gail Addlestone during her treatments for breast cancer. Her “idea” was to walk or run the Country Music Half-Marathon while raising funds for Gilda’s Club Nashville. In the past ten years, more than 1200 members of Gilda’s Gang have raised over $1.2M for Gilda’s Club.

The 2016 season will begin on Saturday, January 23 at 9AM with a 3-mile run/walk and kick-off celebration at Gilda’s Club – and is open to everyone. The event will feature a Q&A session with the coaches, mini-clinics on stretching and injury prevention, nutrition and hydration for training, selecting apparel for cold-weather training, and footwear options for runners and walkers.

The 14-week training program will include: Saturday AM group walk/runs led by RESULTS FITNESS and local personal trainers, mid-week training options, personalized training plans for all levels, team discount for race registration, fundraising tips and templates to help participants reach their goal amount, official team gear, and post-race awards celebration. To join The Gang, participants will pledge to raise a minimum of $500 by race day – with all monies going directly to support the free programs at Gilda’s Club Nashville.
