Medical Student Service Project Award East Tennessee State University James H. Quillen College of Medicine Trot for Tots 5K Race


Thanks so much again for the Medical Student Service Project Award for our Inaugural Trot for Tots 5K Race held on April 4, 2009. I think your office would be proud of how the race truly became a community event. We could not have had a successful race without the generous help of the entire Class of 2009 and the guidance of Dr. Rob Schoborg (our virology professor and overall hero)--and, of course, the AΩA Service Project Award made it all possible!

Race Day was a bit on the chilly side, but we were thrilled with the turnout: 221 people came to run and walk, more than four times the amount we had initially anticipated. The fact that some runners raced in costume--the race's overall winner, Matt Goldman, was in a cow suit--made the atmosphere fun, festive, and kid-friendly. Even after the race, people mingled on the hospital campus, enjoying snacks, the sunshine, and each other's company. We are so tickled with the race's success! Because so many people donated and participated, we are going to be able to give Child Life Services at the Niswonger Childrens' Hospital a bigger gift than we ever expected.
