Welcome to the official page for the 10th annual Sprint for the Prints race, sponsored by the University of Tennessee College of Nursing Student Nurses’ Association.
Each year, we run a 5K to raise money for the Precious Prints Project, a nonprofit organization that brings comfort to families by providing them with a necklace pendant bearing the fingerprint of their lost child. We also run in order to honor those families whose children have passed on.
Due to forecasted heavy rain and storms this weekend, the Sprint for the Prints Celebration – originally scheduled for this Saturday, October 1 at UT Gardens – will be postponed. We had hoped for a rain or shine event, but for the safety of our guests and volunteers we have decided to focus our efforts on remembrance by joining with the University of Tennessee Medical Center’s annual Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day. Please join us for an evening of remembrance and fellowship!
October 17, 2022 (6:00 – 7:30 pm)
Lakeshore Park – Marble Hall
5930 Lyons View Pike, Knoxville
UT Nursing Students will provide an opportunity for participants to place fingerprints on a memory canvas, write thoughts on cards to be included in the time capsule to be included in the new College of Nursing building, and other commemorative activities.
