On Saturday, October 28th, Advocate Capital’s Team Hope will trade in their green shirts for pink ones to participate in this year’s Susan G. Komen Greater Nashville Race for the Cure! Our team will also be taking on a new name for the event, Team Shirley, in honor of Advocate Capital’s very own breast cancer survivor, Shirley Johnson! Shirley is not only an incredible asset to the company but an incredible woman. We are thrilled to be volunteering with the organization to celebrate her strength, the strength of other survivors, and the memory of those who have lost their battle with the disease.
Because the Greater Nashville Race for the Cure is just two weeks away, our ten Team Shirley volunteers are gearing up for the 5K Walk/Run by raising awareness and funds for the fight against breast cancer. Statistics show one in eight women will be diagnosed with the disease in their lifetime, and 13 million deaths will arise because of it in the next 25 years. Team Shirley is hoping to slash those statistics by raising $1,000 for the Susan G. Komen organization and its mission. Will you support us in this fight? Any contribution can help and serve as a powerful tool to end breast cancer once and for all!

Let’s put a stop to breast cancer, and let’s do it together!
