The Westhaven Foundation hosted Franklin 4 The Cure, an all-day event which includes Run 4 The Cure/Walk and Concert 4 The cure. All proceeds from both events were donated to the Franklin 4 the Cure Discovery Grant supporting cancer research at Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt.


The Westhaven Foundation will donate $125,000 to benefit Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt. A check presentation will be held Friday, Oct. 25 at 10:30 a.m. at the Westhaven Residents Club in Franklin, Tennessee.
 
The Westhaven community hosted Franklin 4 The Cure, an all-day event which includes 'Run 4 The Cure 5K Run/Walk' and 'Concert 4 The Cure’. All the proceeds from both events were donated to the Franklin 4 the Cure Discovery Grant supporting cancer research at Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt. 
 
Southern Land Company, and its Westhaven community were presenting sponsors of this year’s event, with a goal of raising $100,000 for cancer research here in Middle Tennessee.  
 
The event originated from efforts by the Stacey family, after their mother Teresa Stacey, lost her 12-year long battle with the disease in 2001.  So far, the Stacey family has helped raise more than $465,000 for cancer research in Middle Tennessee. 
Last year, the Westhaven Foundation donated the proceeds to Emmanuel Volanakis, M.D, assistant professor of Pediatrics at Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt, to support his basic research. This year’s gift is almost double what was raised last year.
