Dash to the Door 5K Family Run/Walk to Benefit Beersheba Springs Medical Clinic


Runners and walkers are invited to participate in the Dash to the Door 5K Family Run/Walk on the weekend of July 3-5 2021, to benefit Beersheba Springs Medical Clinic.

Since 2015, Dash to the Door, a 3-mile walk or 5K run through Beersheba Springs has been the annual fundraiser for the Beersheba Springs Medical Clinic (BSMC). This year it will be a hybrid event— both virtual and in person—so that anyone can participate from any location. Sign up here <https://beershebaclinic.org/da...;. Participants should arrive by 7 a.m. in front of the clinic (located at 19592 State Highway 56) prior to the 7:30 a.m. start time.

“Dash to the Door provides significant and much-needed funding that allows Beersheba Springs Medical Clinic to meet the medical needs of patients in more than 17 counties in Middle Tennessee,” said BSMC Executive Director Alison Gower. “The clinic and its patients are grateful beneficiaries of the strong community spirit championed by our enthusiastic Dash to the Door supporters.”

Since its beginning in 2015, Dash to the Door has raised more than $120,000 for BSMC.

“After 2020’s virtual race, we look forward to welcoming the community back for this annual summertime event as we celebrate our nation’s independence,” Gower added.

The BSMC is a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) medical facility established by and for the community of Beersheba Springs located in Grundy County. The clinic, which opened on Nov. 21, 2010, averages 2,100 patient visits annually and is staffed by a nurse practitioner, medical assistant, office manager, and volunteer physicians from St. Thomas and Erlanger.

The facility provides comprehensive ambulatory medical services for the community including diagnosis and treatment of acute episodic illness as well as ongoing supervision of chronic diseases, minor wound management, injury stabilization, and arrangement of hospital and specialist referrals. The clinic also provides prenatal and well-child care along with family planning.

The BSMC Dental Clinic opened in June 2019 and has conducted more than 100 patient visits.
