The brothers of Phi Delta Theta: Kettering University created a unique event aimed at raising funds for the LLS. This event is called GM to GMI: Run for the Cure and consists of a 65-mile relay run from General Motors’ Renaissance Center (Detroit, MI) to Kettering University (formerly General Motors Institute, Flint MI).

This year the event took place on May 31, 2014. It started 7:00 am at the Renaissance Center and finished around 2:00 pm at Kettering University’s Campus Center.
The relay began at 7am on the footsteps of the Detroit River, with a cool silence in the still Detroit air. Running a total of 12-15 miles per person, each member who was not pounding the pavement was seated in a chase vehicle, graciously loaned to the effort by GM.
The 65-mile route brought the brothers up Woodward Ave, eventually linking to Dixie Highway and then to Saginaw Road in Grand Blanc. The run was completed in just over 7 hours, with the team arriving to Kettering University around 2:30 in the afternoon.
