The annual event is coordinated each spring by the students of the Tennessee Wesleyan College Exercise & Sports Sciences Department's Administration and Organization of Sport and P.E. class. Since this course is only a one-time requirement, each year a different group of students organizes the event. The 2012 race will be the 14th annual event and it continues to improve each year.
All proceeds benefit the Department. In 2010, the group earned $2,000 which was used to purchase a laptop and projector for one of the two classrooms utilized by the Exercise and Sports Sciences Department. In 2011, the group earned $2,800 which was used to purchase enough tennis racquets and lacrosse sticks for an entire class of future professionals. It also funded a three day trip for four Physical Education Majors to the annual TAHPERD conference and paid their memberships to organization for the entire year.
