The Physical Therapist Assistant Program at Volunteer State Community College will hold a 5K Fun Run/Walk with all proceeds benefiting the Fisher House at Fort Campbell.

The Fisher House program is a unique private-public partnership that supports America's military in their time of need. Fisher House facilities, located in 16 states and in Europe, have saved military families nearly $120 million in lodging fees, subsistence costs, and transportation expenses. Fisher House serves more than 12,000 families annually. The average length of stay of the families is 12 days. Currently, 43 houses are in operation with more under construction.
