Franklin 4 the Cure is a two-day fundraising event that will take place on September 16th and 17th in my community of Westhaven located in Franklin. The event includes a 5K Colorful Run 4 the Cure on Friday, the 16th, and a concert the following day headlined by Kellie Pickler. All contributions to the event will fund discovery grants at Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt. Discovery grants provide seed funding for cancer researchers to pursue bold ideas in the lab that can lead to breakthrough discoveries in the fight against cancer. Even if you are unable to attend the event, please consider making a donation. No matter how small any donation will be greatly appreciated. I am raising funds in honor of a very close friend who passed away this past year due to lung cancer.
