The 2017 Iroquois Steeplechase drew more than 25,000 spectators for the 76th annual event on May 13 at Percy Warner Park. Since designating Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt as its official charity in 1981, the Steeplechase has raised more than $10 million for the hospital.

Among the crowd was Steeplechase child ambassador Ansley McLaurin, 10, of Hendersonville, who posed for a photo with her brother, Britton, 7, and Children’s Hospital mascot Champ. Ansley has been a patient at Children’s Hospital since she was diagnosed at age 2 with a rare cancer of the lungs. (photo by Tommy Lawson)
