LifeStorage Sponsors Team at Muddy Buddy Competition to Benefit Nonprofit


LifeStorage Centers LLC, a Chicagoland self-storage operator, is donating to Challenged Athletes Foundation (CAF) by sponsoring “Team LifeStorage” at the Muddy Buddy bike-and-run race on Sunday, July 31, in Gilberts, Ill. CAF provides assistance to people with physical disabilities so they can pursue active lifestyles.

“I am inspired by not only the foundation, but the athletes that benefit from them,” Susan Powers, a LifeStorage facility manager, said in a news release. Powers is captain of “Team LifeStorage.” She will be participating with co-worker Liz Benson in the Muddy Buddy race. It's a two-person “ride and run” event held in various locations across the country to raise money for CAF.

CAF offers sports equipment, post-rehabilitation and mentoring services, and lifestyle information for the physically challenged. This includes those who have suffered a traumatic injury, have a physically impairing disease or were born with a congenital impairment resulting in a physical disability. Team LifeStorage is in the midst of fundraising events to help reach the $5,000 goal. The first was a two-month partnership with a Wendy's restaurant, and future events include partnerships with Tilted Kilt restaurants and bowling alleys, among others.

LifeStorage has six locations in Chicago and 11 in the suburbs.
