One of Tennessee’s most respected grocery stores has made a major investment in saving lives. Kroger will be the presenting sponsor for the annual Race for the Cure®, to be held on Saturday, October 27th in Maryland Farms. Kroger celebrates its 10th anniversary of supporting Susan G. Komen’s race to end breast cancer forever.
“We are so thankful to have corporate supporters in this city who believe in what we’re doing, and making significant investments in our mission,” said Patty Harman, Executive Director of Komen Greater Nashville. “Kroger’s long-term commitment to finding a cure for cancer shows their true commitment to the people of our community."
The Race for the Cure is Komen’s largest annual fundraiser and brings in over $1 million for local screenings, treatment and education; as well as international research to find a cure for breast cancer. Online registration for the Race is open and available at www.komennashville.org. The course includes a 5K (1.3 miles) loop as well as a 1 mile fun run.
“We are proud to be the presenting sponsor again this year for Komen’s Race for the Cure,” said Melissa Eads, Community Affairs Manager for Kroger. “Breast cancer effects so many of our friends and families and Kroger takes a strong approach to doing all we can to eliminate it. We love being a part of the enormous impact Komen can make on this front.”
