Representatives from 11 Middle Tennessee non-profits gathered at a special presentation to receive more than $500,000 in grant money from Susan G. Komen for the Cure Greater Nashville affiliate.
The grantees included two Murfreesboro organizations: Middle Tennessee Medical Center and Primary Care & Hope Clinic, which are dedicated to raising awareness and providing support for breast cancer.
“These organizations have created some of the most sophisticated programs available to the Murfreesboro communities,” said Kathy Parolini, executive director of Susan G. Komen for the Cure-Greater Nashville affiliate. “Komen for the Cure could not be more pleased to have the opportunity to help our fellow non-profits.”
The largest percentage of money raised for Komen for the Cure is the organizations annual Race for the Cure event that is scheduled for October 10, 2009 in Maryland Farms. “Our annual events and generous donors make it possible for us to give so much money to local organizations that need additional funding,” said Parolini.
