About This Activity

It's that time again, time to run for the pie...

This year instead of t-shirts North East Texas Real Estate will be giving out finisher's medals and the plan is for anyone that has cancer or had cancer to place the medal on the finisher's neck.

Why the change you ask? In 2015 Kellie Davis, Broker/Owner of North East Texas Real Estate is running "The Boston Marathon" and in conjunction with this is raising money for the Dana-Farber Cancer Research institute and has set a goal to raise $10,500. The difference in cost for t-shirts versus medals is being donated to DFMC(Dana-Faber Marathon Challenge). Everyone will receive a medal, 150 medals have been ordered. Last year we had 110 people attend, and only had 50 t-shirts. The medals will be encouraging to both the giver and receiver.

Everyone's family has been touched by cancer, the DFMC is an amazing organization that does research with the goal to eliminate cancer, if you would like to make a donation on Thanksgiving morning there will be a plaace set up to do so. Every penny, nickel, dime and dollar helps.
