Running For Relay For Life

220px-American_Cancer_Society_Relay_For_LifeIn May 1985, Dr. Gordon Klatt, a colorectal surgeon from Tacoma, Washington decided he wanted to raise money for the American Cancer Society in honor of his patients. Honor patients that have cancer or had cancer. For 24 hours, Dr. Klatt walked around the track. Throughout the night, friends paid $25 to run or walk 30 minutes with him. He walked approximately 83 miles and raised $27,000 to fight cancer. Nearly 300 of Dr. Klatt's friends, family, and patients watched as he ran and walked the course. After this successful event, Dr. Klatt thought about how other people could partake in a similar 24-hour event in communities across the country. He recruited a small team of people and put on the first Relay For Life event in 1986. Since then, Relay has developed into an overnight event where people bring tents and sleep out around the tracks.
