FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Today’s 5th annual Shoney’s 5K Family Fun Run & Walk generated $20,754 for the Nashville Police Support Fund, a component of The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee.
          
Several hundred persons took part in today’s event, which featured a fun race through parts of downtown and a breakfast/festival in a parking lot of LP Field.  Tennessee Titans guard and 1st round draft pick Chance Warmack served as the official starter.  He arrived early to greet families and run participants.
          
Through the generosity of Shoney’s CEO David Davoudpour, who matches entry fees dollar for dollar, more than $108,000 has been raised for the Nashville Police Support Fund since the 5K Family Fun Run & Walk began in 2009.  The fund is designed to help defray the cost for officers working to complete higher education degrees.
