Go Tri Sports is proud to provide Race Directing services to the Run for RET – all proceeds from this event benefits the RET Foundation. The RET Foundation aims to help pediatric cancer patients and their families.
In 1999, shortly before his 14th birthday, Ret Thomas was diagnosed with a relatively rare and virulent form of pediatric cancer known as Ewing’s Sarcoma. Following a year-long battle, he died in April 2000.
To honor Ret’s courage and determination, and to give life to his desire to make something positive come from his struggle with cancer, his family has established the RET (Richard E. Thomas III) Pediatric Cancer Foundation.
