Fleet Feet collects stuffed animals for sick kids

Hundreds of bunnies, chicks, lambs and other spring-themed stuffed animals were collected last year in memory of Samantha "Sammie" Hartsfield. Fleet Feet Davis is collecting animals again this year — only new animals, please, with tags attached — that will be delivered to local hospitals by Team Sammie. Courtesy photo

Fleet Feet Davis will host its third annual Bunny Run on Saturday, March 23, to honor the memory of Samantha “Sammie” Hartsfield, the daughter of Fleet Feet staff member Chris Hartsfield.

Sammie, who bravely battled osteosarcoma for nearly three years, proposed the idea of starting a Bunny Drive to collect spring-themed stuffed animals that would be distributed to sick children in area hospitals.

“Sammie touched many lives throughout her short 12 years, and she continues to do so today in many ways — especially through the hundreds of smiles spread through her annual Bunny Drive,” a Fleet Feet spokeswoman says.

Fleet Feet, 615 Second St. in downtown Davis, is collecting donations of spring-themed stuffed animals that will be delivered to local hospitals by Team Sammie. Only new stuffed animals (with tags attached, please) can be accepted.

On March 23, the first 50 runners or walkers who bring three or more stuffed animals to the Bunny Run at Fleet Feet will receive a Bunny Run technical Asics T-shirt compliments of Fleet Feet Davis. T-shirt distribution starts at 7:30 a.m., and the workout begins at 8 a.m. with a casual run/walk from the store led by Fleet Feet coaches.

Afterward, everyone is invited to stick around for hot Starbuck’s coffee and breakfast of fruit, muffins and bagels. Raffle prizes provided by Fleet Feet and Asics will be awarded.

For more information, visit Team Sammie on Facebook.
