New Date: TBD

 Friends of Alzheimer’s,

The Forget Me Not 5K committee, in coordination with The Pat Summitt Foundation, Pinnacle of Turkey Creek and The Town of Farragut, has reflected seriously on the COVID-19 that has substantially altered the global sports landscape and will have material impact on the mass participation industry in the immediate term. We want to reassure you that the health and well-being of our community is our primary concern. To this end, we are doing our part to communicate effectively and follow public health agencies and governmental authorities’ recommendations. We know that both our athletes and our community want to be racing; we do too.

While Forget Me Not 5K for Alzheimer’s mission is to provide exceptional, life-changing race experiences for athletes of all levels, from their first step to the finish line, we can only accomplish this by providing the safest possible environment, and safeguarding the citizens of our host community.

We expect that there are going to be substantial and widespread event postponements in the coming weeks and months. The decision to postpone this event is based on availability of community resources and ongoing event-specific risk assessment in coordination with the relevant healthcare and government authorities as guidelines are being refined daily and sometimes hourly.

Postponement: Registered athletes for events that are postponed due to COVID-19 by the local health authorities are automatically transferred to the rescheduled date. Or, per your request, we will send your Official 10th Annual T-shirt as a Ghost Runner, or transfer your registration funds to a direct donation to The Pat Summitt Foundation.

This is a highly dynamic situation and we will continue to adapt and adjust as appropriate. We appreciate your patience in the coming days and weeks. We will update you on the new race date.

We recognize that this is a challenging time but our community will endure. We are inspired by your ambition, and endeavor to be worthy of your commitment.

Thank you for your continued support, and we wish you the best in health and wellness.

The 10th Annual Forget Me Not 5K for Alzheimer's

Here Are Your Options:

We will transfer your registration to the new event date once it is set, and look forward to having you join us. Thanks for your patience!

Virtual races happen all the time, and allow you to join the fun without the crowds. You simply run the distance on your own. Thanks for being a Ghost Runner. We will get you your T-shirt. 

You want us to keep your registration fees to benefit The Pat Summitt Foundation for research in Alzheimer's Disease. We are a completely volunteer managed race and 100% of proceeds go to our benefactor. We deeply appreciate your generosity and look forward to seeing you at an event soon.

We understand. We hope you can join us next time.

Description

The Forget Me Not 5k for Alzheimer's benefitting The Pat Summitt Foundation is a fun fast loop at our new location at Turkey Creek Shopping Complex in Farragut, Tennessee. The start and finish will be at Belk. The 5K run/walk begins with a pre-race party and ends with a post-race celebration with music, awards, food, drinks, and prizes. In addition to the 5K, we will have a 1 mile fun run- The 'Lil Smokey Run'. All the proceeds from the event benefit The Pat Summitt Foundation and its support of The Pat Summitt Clinic at The University of Tennessee Medical Center. Ages 5-95 will run or walk in the race. Our goal is to raise awareness and funds to eliminate this devastating disease. Come help by racing for a cure and fighting with Pat Summitt against this fierce opponent.
