Franklin’s 11th annual Franklin 4 The Cure’s “Run 4 The Cure” 5K race returns to the Westhaven community in West Franklin on Saturday, September 9th starting at 7:30 a.m. Proceeds will benefit Middle Tennessee cancer research at Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt.
This year’s 5K will wind along the beautifully landscaped and paved trails throughout the Westhaven community, then ending at the main entrance to a celebration party for all participants.
The weekend’s festivities will end on Saturday, September 9th, with “Concert 4 The Cure” featuring a silent auction, VIP dinner and a performance by one of Nashville’s most famous songwriters, Jeffrey Steele.
Proceeds from the weekend’s events will once again benefit the Franklin 4 The Cure Discovery Grant supporting cancer research at Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt. Franklin 4 The Cure was born out of the efforts of the Stacey family, after their mother, Teresa Stacey, lost her 12-year long battle with the disease in 2001. To date, the Stacey family and Franklin 4 The Cure has helped raise more than $1,000,000 for cancer research right here in Middle Tennessee.
