Fundraiser for Brian Thomas, runner battling skin cancer

Posted: Updated:

Brian Thomas has a passion for running and has used that passion to help others, but now he needs the community's help as he fights his own battle -- skin cancer.

Back in 2001-2002, Thomas ran from Lake Orion to Florida to raise money and awareness for cerebral palsy. Ten years later he ran another trip to fight cancer. Just months after that run, Thomas found out he, himself, would fight cancer.

Thomas has since undergone what doctors call "experimental" chemotherapy that isn't covered by insurance.

On Wednesday, Sept. 11, a fundraiser will be held for Thomas at Buffalo Wild Wings in Lake Orion. The event will run throughout the day. To show your support, download this flyer, and 20 percent of your purchases will support The Brian Thomas Cancer Fund.
