Relay For Life of Howard/Glasscock Counties

Ready to walk the Survivor's Lap
In Howard County we have an event that has been going on for 19 years, at the writing of this article, called the 'Relay For Life of Howard/Glasscock Counties.'

Nationally, the Relay For Life has it's roots in 1985, when a Tacoma Washington colorectal surgeon named Gordy Klatt held his own event, walking over 83 miles in 24 hours while friends paid $25 to run or walk 30 minutes with him. That year Dr. Klatt raised $27,000. As he walked the track, he came up with the idea of a 24 hour team relay event. Within months he assembled a committee to help plan the event, known then as the City of Destiny Classic 24-Hour Run Against Cancer. That event raised $33,000.

Hotel Settles

The Hotel Settles,
as it appears today
To begin, I'd like to say a big 'Thank You!' to Brint Ryan, his brother Kris, and all of the other people involved, for all of the hard work and money put into restoring the Hotel Settles. Hopefully it will spark a rebirth of downtown Big Spring. As someone who has lived in Big Spring all my life, that's something to be excited about.
