The Bunny Run is a very special event here at Fleet Feet Davis that honors the life of Samantha "Sammie" Hartsfield, the daughter of Fleet Feet staff member, Chris Hartsfield.
Sammie, who bravely battled osteosarcoma for nearly 3 years, proposed the idea of starting a "Bunny Drive" to collect spring-time themed stuffed animals that would be distributed to sick children in local area hospitals. Sammie touched many lives throughout her short 12 years, and she continues to do so today in many ways--especially through the hundreds of smiles spread through her annual Bunny Drive.
Fleet Feet is proud to host our 3rd annual Bunny Run in support of Team Sammie's Bunny Drive. We are now collecting donations of springtime-themed stuffed animals that will be delivered to local hospitals by Team Sammie. Only NEW stuffed animals (with tags attached, please) can be accepted.
On Saturday, March 23, the first 50 runners or walkers who bring 3 or more stuffed animals to the Bunny Run at Fleet Feet will receive a Bunny Run technical Asics tee compliments of Fleet Feet Davis. Tee distribution starts at 7:30am, the workout starts at 8 am with a casual run/walk from the store led by Fleet Feet coaches. Afterwards, stick around for hot Starbuck's coffee and breakfast of fruit, muffins, and bagels. We'll also be giving away raffle prizes provided by Fleet Feet and Asics! Please join us for a fun morning to serve a great cause!
