Tim Leary & The Morning Showgram team hosted the 3rd annual “Tats for TaTas” to raise money for The Nancy N. and JC Lewis (Breast) Cancer and Research Pavilion at St. Joseph’s Candler Hospital in Savannah. This year they raised
$16,500 during their 4-week campaign. (This campaign has raised more than $30,000 in its three years.) Throughout the month of November, listeners donated $10 for each name of someone in their life that’s been affected by breast cancer; survivor, lost the fight, or currently in the battle. All names were then tattooed on Tim, as well as co-hosts Red and Claire Beverly.
With 800 names and logos tattooed on him, including glitter and bedazzled jewels, Tim ran the Savannah River Bridge Run’s “Double Pump” (3 times over the Talmadge Bridge at a 5.5% uphill grade, 9.6 mile race) as a human memorial to those who’ve battled breast cancer. Karen Daiss and Claire both wore 300+ tattoos each and ran the 10k. (The tattooing process took 4 days at 6 hours a day.)
