Heery Raises Funds and Awareness at the TDOC 5K

On Saturday, May 14, the Nashville Office participated in the TDOC 5K Run/Walk at the Historic Tennessee State Penitentiary. All proceeds raised from the even benefit the Big Brothers and Sisters (BBBS) of Middle Tennessee. Nearly 400 people laced up for the event and raised $8,720 for the organization. The race also provides a rare opportunity for members of the public to get an up-close look of the historic prison landmark, but of course more importantly supports BBBS of Middle Tennessee. The money raised will be used to provide mentorship and guidance to Tennessee children. Nearly one third of the children served by BBBS have one or both parents incarcerated. The involvement of BBBS in the life of a child can help break the cycle of generational incarceration and put that child on a path to success.
