Approximately 350 people took part in Saturday’s Shade Tree Trot on the Vanderbilt campus.

Last week’s Shade Tree Trot and benefit dinner raised a record amount — more than $51,000.
Nearly 350 runners and walkers participated in the seventh annual 5K race organized by Vanderbilt University School of Medicine students. There were 650 registrants for this year’s event on the Vanderbilt campus.
The Trot, the single largest source of funding for the Shade Tree Clinic, and the Shade Tree Benefit Dinner support the free student-run medical clinic for Nashville residents with limited resources.
