Thank you to everyone who came out to run with us and supported our team! We raised just shy of $2,000 to help end the fight with cancer!
As Relay for Life celebrates 30 years of fundraising to bring an end to cancer, Fleet Feet Sports wants to bring back the spirit of the very first Relay.
In the mid-1980s, Dr. Gordy Klatt, a Tacoma colorectal surgeon, wanted to enhance the income of his local American Cancer Society office. He decided to personally raise money for the fight by doing something he enjoyed—running marathons.
In May 1985, Dr. Klatt spent a grueling 24 hours circling the track at Baker Stadium at the University of Puget Sound in Tacoma for more than 83 miles. Throughout the night, friends paid $25 to run or walk 30 minutes with him. He raised $27,000 to fight cancer. That first year, nearly 300 of Dr. Klatt's friends, family, and patients watched as he ran and walked the course.
We have signed up to walk, run, and fundraise in the Catawba County Relay for Life on May 29-30. We hope you will consider joining our team, signing up to run, or making a donation in support of our efforts!
