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.
