At the invitation of one of our favorite national publications managers (Faye Porter of NFIB), Hammock once again was a sponsor in this year’s Susan G. Koman Breast Cancer Foundation’s Race for the Cure.
Thousands of walkers and runners turned out on Sunday to walk in celebration, memory or support of women fighting breast cancer. Hammock purchased a sign in Susan’s Garden, one of the many activities set up at MetroCenter’s Business Park where the race took place.
Five Hammoratis (Barbara not pictured) laced up their sneakers and joined the 5K race. Though all are avid athletes, four decided to walk instead of run the race (out too late celebrating Vandy’s 4-0 season?). Celebrity gossip diva Lena Basha (the only one from the group who ran) got a taste of stardom herself when she was recognized by a fellow racer, who witnessed Hammock’s impressive victory in last week’s 12th Annual Nashville Adult Literacy Council Corporate Spelling Bee.
The Race for the Cure raised more than $400,000.
