Tanner's Team relieves financial pressures so they can care for children battling life-threatening illnesses. We run on the hard work of dedicated volunteers, so 93 cents of each dollar we raise goes to families. Grants average $1000 and we pay creditors directly. Meaningful support when it's needed most.

NEW THIS YEAR: FREE TRAINING RUNS!!!

Two veteran distance runners are offering a series of three Sunday evening training runs for people interested in competing in the Tanner’s Team 5K run and the Corporate Challenge 5K. 

Tim Wright and Ryan Wateland will conduct the runs at 6 p.m. June 2, 9, and 16 at Bob Cross Park. Runners will meet at the shelter near the wading pool in the park. The runs are open to people of all abilities from beginners (never run a 5K) to advanced runners looking to get in some miles and have fun.

Just show up each Sunday evening. Don’t have to register for the training runs. Tim and Ryan will help those trying to go from couch to finish line to create a plan to succeed. Bring along a friend or two. Join the training for a great cause: Running the Tanner’s Team 5K. The proceeds go to give grants to families with a child battling a life-threatening illness.

Corporate Challenge teams can use the training runs as a great way to boost team spirit. For more information: John Bodette, mr.bodette@gmail.com or 320-248-8585
