The Shade Tree Trot, a  5K charity race benefiting the student-run Shade Tree Clinic, will be held May 1. starting at 11 a.m. at Vanderbilt’s football stadium.
Registration fee is $20 for students and $25 for others. Participants will receive a T-shirt with registration.
The Shade Tree Family Clinic is operated by medical students under the supervision of Vanderbilt physicians. It provides health care free of cost to more than 1,300 patients, with volume increasing every year and yearly expenses approaching $150,000. The clinic has traditionally relied on a combination of grants and private donors to maintain its operating budget, and is seeking support from the greater Nashville community.
The inaugural Trot last spring brought together more than 300 participants and raised more than $30,000. The event is sponsored by Vanderbilt University School of Medicine Advisory College Program. More information is at
