BNI to hosts 5K fundraiser

The Morristown chapter of Business Network International will be hosting their “Stop Drop & Run BNI 5K” race on Saturday to benefit all four Hamblen County volunteer fire departments.

The race will begin at 8 a.m. at Citizen National Bank, 4320 Evan Greene Plaza.

The entrance fee is $30. Participants can sign up register for ages 13 and up, or 12 and under.

There will be a post-race party with music, kids’ activities, food and beverages.

More information can be found on the Morristown BNI Facebook page.

Breanna Hall, a representative of BNI Morristown, said that the fundraising has been difficult for volunteer fire departments this past year.

“They were unable to fundraise last year due to COVID, so we are trying to help give back to them,” she said.
