Store Here Self Storage Raises Funds for Huntsman Cancer Institute in Utah

Store Here Management LLC, the division of RHW Capital Management Group LLC that operates the Store Here Self Storage brand, is raising funds online this month for Huntsman Cancer Institute (HCI), a cancer-research center and treatment hospital at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City. Donations will be allocated to the new Kathryn F. Kirk Center for Comprehensive Cancer Care and Women’s Cancers, according to StoreHere.com, where contributions are being collected.

“Along with donating to cancer research, we will be highlighting HCI and its patients by sharing archived stories told by patients, [sharing] information on women's cancer, and highlighting statistics and ways to help women affected by cancer,” said Ryan Rogers, managing partner of Store Here.

The Huntsman Family pledged $100 million in 1995 to build HCI, which is owned by the state of Utah and is the state’s official cancer center. The institute has 206 research teams and operates clinics that focus on patients with a family history of breast, colon, melanoma, pancreas and prostate cancers. It also has three community clinics and five affiliate hospitals in neighboring states.

HCI also manages the Utah Population Database, the largest genetic database in the world, according to the HCI website. It includes information on more than 11 million people, linked to genealogies as well as health, birth, death and marriage records, according to its website.

“We are extremely grateful for Store Here's continued commitment to our cause and to the cause of our founder, Jon M. Huntsman Sr., who said ‘The best investment we can make in ourselves, our family, loved ones and those closest to us is to invest in cancer research,’” said D. Jerry Nelson, director of major gifts for the Huntsman Cancer Foundation, which raises funds to support HCI’s mission. “Cancer is personal. It's personal when you or someone you love receives a cancer diagnosis. Cancer moves fast; we need to move faster!”

Founded in 2012 by self-storage veterans with more than 70 years of combined experience, RHW owns or manages 28 self-storage facilities in 15 states. It’s operating portfolio comprises more than 2 million net rentable square feet. Store Here operates facilities across 11 states.
