Last Saturday’s Shade Tree Trot and benefit dinner raised a record amount — more than $58,000.

Approximately 700 runners and walkers participated in the seventh annual 5K race on the Vanderbilt campus organized by Vanderbilt University School of Medicine students.

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.
