D300 Relay For Life Raises $135,000 For Cancer
It was the fourth time groups of D300 students, teachers and staff trooped all night to raise funds for cancer research and education. Some were getting droopy at 5 am, an hour before the event's end. They probably weren't as pooped as its founder at the first one, though. In May, 1985, Seattle surgeon Gordy Klatt ran 83 miles in 24 hours to raise $27,000 in funds for the fight against cancer.
