A+ Storage of Nashville, Tenn., is providing space for the organization and support of the Susan G. Komen Greater Nashville Race for the Cure, which will take place on Oct. 10. For the second consecutive year, the self-storage facility has donated space for the organization to assemble its participant racing packets. The packets will be assembled by community volunteers and distributed from A+ Storage’s 10 Nashville-area locations.
The race will begin at 6:30 a.m. at Maryland Farms in Brentwood, Tenn., and will include a 5K run, a 5K walk and a one-mile walk.
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.
