A+ Storage helped the Susan G. Komen (SGK) Race for the Cure, Greater Nashville Affiliate, raise $1.3 million during an October fundraiser.
In addition to providing year-round storage to SGK, A+ Storage provided a room where more than 10,000 race packets were assembled for the Oct. 10 event. The facility partnered with Dell Computers and the Hard Rock Café, who graciously made available employees for the assembly of the race packets. A+ Storage's 10 locations in the Nashville market were designated as packet pickup points. This year's race drew more than 12,000 participants.
SGK is a non-profit that helps fund research and development for the cure of breast cancer. Up to 75 percent of net proceeds raised by the Komen Greater Nashville Affiliate is dedicated to fighting breast cancer in Middle Tennessee. In 2008, it funded 11 local programs and distributed more than $600,000 to the cause.
“The Susan G. Komen team is a pleasure to work with,” says Robert Craig of A+ Storage. “They are totally committed, working toward their goals and of the ongoing collaboration to address breast health”
“In spite of the continued recession, I believe there are many wonderful people who are willing to step up and support worthy charitable causes,” Craig adds.
