For all of you sports fans out there, I think you’ll agree that Fall is one of the best times of year.  While Indianapolis is collectively cringing at the 0-4 record of our beloved Colts, there are plenty of other sports teams, both collegiate and professional, to cheer for.  Most of you may have begun to notice your favorite teams breaking out their pink towels, gloves and jerseys this week.  October marks National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

oct-breast-cancer-awareness-month1-resized-600One thing is for certain:  I did not receive the athletic genes in my family.  My younger sister, Claire, definitely did.  She is a red-shirt junior on the University of Michigan volleyball team (GO BLUE!)  Every year during the first week of October, the University of Michigan athletic department and Michigan sports teams put on a week-long fundraiser to raise money for breast cancer research.  At the end of the week, they sport pink jerseys and auction them off to donate the proceeds after the match.  The “pink match” is this weekend.

It’s not just her team that participates.  College and professional programs nationwide will sport their pink this month in order to raise awareness about a disease that kills approximately 40,000 women in the United States every year.  Breast cancer is the second most common cause of death due to cancer behind lung cancer.

Luckily, significant progress has been made in the last few years, and the five-year survival rate for women who have caught this type of cancer early-on is between 81% and 85%.  Whether pink is your thing or not, consider sporting the color sometime this month in honor of all the people lost, suffering and currently fighting this disease.

It seems there is never a shortage of walks and runs to raise money and awareness for good causes, and we feel pretty lucky to be able to be a part of them.  Last year, we lost a longtime Storage Solutions friend, Bobby Mills.  In his honor, we were able to raise some money for this year’s heart walk.  This past Saturday, Storage Solutions employee Dave Holloway and his family participated in the American Heart Association’s Heart Walk here in Indianapolis.

Who participated in the Heart Walk this weekend?

What is your connection to the American Heart Assocation?

The American Heart Association helped to save my dad’s life last November.  I have also known Brian Mills, Bobby’s son, for quite a long time.  He helped my daughter determine her career path as physician’s assistant.  The world is a better place with people like Brian Mills.  He is caring, considerate, and has a passion for life, as did his father, who we lost last year.

I was honored to help with this cause this weekend.

Heart disease affects one in every four Americans. It is the leading cause of death  for both men and women living in the United States.  There are so many things that can be done to help preventive heart disease and heart attacks.  To learn more about the American Heart Association and preventing heart disease, visit www.heart.org.

Today marks the final day of the 8th annual third-party logistics summit in Atlanta, GA. This tradeshow is the world’s largest event for third-party logistics providers and is focusing on how to drive business and online sales during an economic rebound. Kevin and Chastity have been working hard to make Storage Solutions a known presence this year.  Our booth highlights the three most important aspects of what we do:  buying used products, selling products and installing the best available.


We have also chosen this event to present our new Storage Solutions Certified Pre-Owned Rack Program.  Our team is committed to providing our customers with reliable, quality products… which is why we’ve created this Certified Program.  The Storage Solutions Certified seal is only awarded to products that pass our rigorous five-point inspection to ensure that our customers are getting the best product available.

While not all of the pre-owned products we sell are required to bear the certified seal, our five-point inspection process helps to ensure that when you buy certified, you are getting the best quality rack.

As we wrap up this year’s 3PL summit, be sure to stop by our booth for more information or visit our website at www.storage-solutions.com.
