Franklin 4 the Cure is a fundraising event that will take place on September 9th in the Westhaven community, located three miles west of downtown Franklin. This event encompasses a Family Fun Run 5K Saturday morning following by an evening concert and silent auction. Proceeds from both the Family Fun Run and the Concert 4 the Cure and auction 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. Findings from preliminary research supported by these grants are essential to obtain funding from the National Cancer Institute (NCI) and other federal agencies that grant millions every year to support cancer research.
