29 May Westhaven Foundation Presents Check to Alzheimer’s Association Tennessee
The Westhaven Foundation, a philanthropic nonprofit organization run by residents at Southern Land Company’s Westhaven community in Franklin, Tennessee, presented the Alzheimer’s Association Tennessee Chapter a check for $20,000 for The Longest Day campaign, a DIY fundraising initiative that allows participants to host their own event to raise awareness and funds for the Alzheimer’s Association. The donation came from proceeds raised at the Foundation’s 2nd annual 5K Memory Run, which was held in April.
Over the past 15 years, the Westhaven community has hosted several 5K events in the neighborhood benefitting a variety of nonprofit organizations, including Project Joy and others for cancer research. In 2019, The Westhaven Foundation unanimously decided to establish the 5K Memory Run to help raise money to support the Alzheimer’s Association, as everyone on the committee and most people in the community know someone who has been affected by the disease.
