The Darryl Worley Foundation recently donated $200,000 to the Cancer Treatment Center that bears the artist’s name. The funds were raised through Darryl Worley’s Tennessee River Run, which celebrated its 10th anniversary in September. Worley recently presented the check on behalf of the foundation to Jack Adams, board member for the Hardin County Medical Center.
The TN River Run included concerts headlined by Montgomery Gentry, Kansas and Worley, a two-day bass tournament, golf tournament, arts and crafts festival, 5K, youth fishing tournament, motorcycle poker run and boat poker run. Songwriter-in-the-round events were held in Tupelo, Memphis, Jackson and Murfreesboro to raise money, as well. Bumpus Harley-Davidson sponsored the Tennessee River Run, which was named favorite outdoor adventure in West Tennessee by the readers of The Tennessee Magazine and best music event on the water by Life on the Water magazine.
The Darryl Worley Foundation was founded in 2001 to serve the special needs of people in West Tennessee, Northwestern Alabama and Northeastern Mississippi. The Foundation, which is a 501c3 public benefit corporation, has received $1.2 million in funds and paid out $1.15 million in grants.
