Kettering University students run from Detroit to Flint to raise money for cancer research

Here’s an inspiring story about a group of college students from Flint’s Kettering University. The group recently ran more than 65 miles to raise money for cancer research.

Here’s an excerpt from Mlive:

Kettering University students in Flint used the 343,200 feet between the learning institute and a Detroit GM facility to try and bring researchers closer to a cure for cancer.

Six members of Phi Delta Theta ran the 65 miles from GM’s Renaissance Center in Detroit to Kettering during the GM to GMI: Run for the Cure event Saturday to raise money for the school’s American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life event taking place June 3-4.

Kettering University, located on Flint’s west side, is one of the top engineering schools in the United States.
