In May 1985, Dr. Klatt spent a grueling 24 hours circling the track at Baker Stadium at the University of Puget Sound in Tacoma. He ran for more than 83 miles. That first year, nearly 300 of Dr. Klatt's friends, family, and patients watched as he ran and walked the course. Throughout the night, friends donated $25 to run or walk with Dr. Klatt for 30 minutes. His efforts raised $27,000 to fight cancer.
The faculty and staff of Bennett's Mill Middle School are gearing up to break all of the records, pull out all the stops, and raise an amazing amount of money to stop cancer in its tracks. We are in desperate need of donations from the entire Bennett's Mill community. Please consider giving what you can to a great cause - simply follow this link to the team website and contribute to a wonderful cause. Do you know a cancer survivor? Please have them sign-up for the survivor's walk or purchase a luminary in their name, and let us honor them the way that they deserve. Best yet, come on out and contribute your time to a great cause by donating your precious time to walk with the Bennett's Mill Team.
Dr. Martin Luther King said it best, "Everybody can be great... because anybody can serve". Please join us in serving our community and celebrating another year in the life of a cancer servi
