about the tracy hoffman memorial run for leukemia


Tracy Hoffman was a member of Willamette University's Theta-Delta Chapter of the Kappa Sigma Fraternity when he was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma. He was cured in 1982, but was tragically diagnosed with leukemia shortly after; the disease that quickly took his life. Hoffman was an honors student, an active intramural athlete, an officer of Theta-Delta's executive council, and worked with troubled youth as a volunteer for Marion County. We do this run each year in the memory of a fallen brother, friend, family member, and community member, and for what his fight represents to thousands of people living with, or affected by blood cancers.

Focused on finding cures and supporting families, all proceeds from the event will go to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society's efforts in the great Pacific Northwest.
