Dear Shine for Shelby Supporter,
We are pleased to announce that the first $1000 Shine for Shelby Scholarship has been awarded to a nursing student at the University of Tennessee, Chattanooga! She is a cancer survivor and was grateful to be awarded the scholarship.
Thanks to the generous support we received from sponsors like you, the first Shine for Shelby 5K Glow Run/Walk and Fun Run was a tremendous success. In fact, that inaugural event was so successful that we are pleased to be working toward adding another Shine for Shelby Scholarship at Cumberland University!
After Shelby’s transplant, she knew nursing school would be more challenging and intended to transfer to Cumberland’s Nursing program so she could live at home for a year or so while she rebuilt her immune system. We are so excited to be working toward a second scholarship for nursing students who face or have faced health challenges.
We expect the 2017 Shine for Shelby 5K Glow Run/Walk and Fun run to be bigger and better than the first, but we will need your support! The date is set for October 21, 2017, so please save the date! We have updated the sponsorship levels and benefits; please let me know if you have any questions!
Thank you, again, for supporting Shine for Shelby. We are looking forward to another great event!
The Shine for Shelby Committee
