Join us on Sunday, April 14, 2019 for the 3rd Annual For Pete's Sake Cancer Color Race taking place on the grounds of CB East High School. The Color Race (and fun walk) is open to all ages. Volunteers will coat runners with color as they run or walk through the route! Come meet Gritty, the Philadelphia Flyers mascot, this year!!
* NEW * This year’s race will strictly be for fun and will NOT be a timed race!
Enjoy snacks, raffles, and music while supporting a great cause that gives families a break from cancer!
This event is coordinated by For Pete’s Sake volunteer, Suzanne Lahetta, along with her family and friends. The Lahettas were recipients of a For Pete’s Sake respite vacation in May 2016, after Suzanne’s husband, Carl, was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, which he had been battling since September 2015. In July of 2018, Carl lost his battle with pancreatic cancer. While Carl was bravely fighting this disease, they had their ups and downs, but lived life to the fullest. Their respite vacation gave the family time to reconnect, rejuvenate and create wonderful memories together. For that short period of time, they were able to put cancer to the side and just enjoy themselves!
After their respite vacation, the Lahettas wanted to do something to give back to the next For Pete’s Sake family and loved the idea of planning a color race in their town. With the help of volunteers, including Mark and Deanna Cunningham, another family helped by For Pete’s Sake, Suzanne has done a phenomenal job sharing our mission with the community of Doylestown.
