Washington Miles for Meso Raises $13K for Mesothelioma Research

Posted on Wed Aug 12, 2015 9:28am

The 4th Annual Washington Memorial 5k Run/Walk, which took place on July 4 in Federal Way, Washington at the Federal Way Community Center, raised $13,000 for mesothelioma research.  

The race was organized by Pat Dyhrman, Diana Stewart, and Pat Hatley. The event honored the memory of their husbands Dick Dyhrman, a Weyerhaeuser Company Geologist; Bud Hatley, a Federal Way School District Athletic Director; and Bob Stewart, a Federal Way High School teacher and coach. They died after being diagnosed with mesothelioma, an aggressive cancer caused by asbestos exposure.

Approximately 230 participants attended the race, which was followed by a pancake breakfast.

Over the past three years, the Washington Memorial 5k Run/Walk has raised $53,000 for the Mesothelioma Applied Research Foundation. The Meso Foundation is dedicated to ending mesothelioma by funding research, advocating for federal funding of mesothelioma research, and by providing education and support for patients and their families.
