WeGo Star offers rides to St. Jude Rock ‘n Roll Marathon & Wine Festival Train

6th annual train will run service to events on Saturday, April 25

NASHVILLE – For the sixth year, Wilson County Mayor and RTA Vice Chair Randall Hutto is partnering with WeGo Public Transit to transport runners and supporters to the St. Jude Rock ‘n Roll Marathon and attendees to the Toast to Tennessee Wine Festival.

The train to the marathon is a collaborative effort between WeGo, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, and Wilson County. All ticket proceeds will benefit St. Jude, and both Famous Footwear and the Mt. Juliet Chamber of Commerce are supporting the special event trains as this year’s corporate sponsors.

Mr. William Drunsic, formerly of The Nashville & Eastern Railroad Corp. and RJ Corman Railroad Co. will donate an additional $5 to St. Jude Children’s Hospital for each ticket sold for both the Nashville Rock ‘n Roll Marathon and Toast to Tennessee Wine Festival trains.
