Sherry Smith created the artwork for Brackish Life t-shirts sold at a recent 5K to bring awareness to the fight against colon cancer. A portion of the proceeds was donated to Talbot Hospice.

Kyle Poore and David Sutton of Brackish Life recently donated to Talbot Hospice a portion of the proceeds from t-shirts sold at TriCycle & Run’s Spring Fling 5K in St. Michaels April 15. The gift was made in honor of Sherry Smith who drew the oyster artwork for the t-shirt and who has fought her own battle with colon and thyroid cancers.  “When Kyle told me I could choose the organization to receive the contribution, I thought of Talbot Hospice and how they’ve touched so many lives in the community,” said Smith.

The Spring Fling run was held to benefit Bay Hematology/Oncology in Easton and to bring awareness to the fight against colon cancer. Blankets, scarves, gloves, magazines, puzzle books, and tissues were collected and donated to Bay Oncology and Hematology for patients undergoing treatment.

According to Brackish Life President Kyle Poore, their philosophy isto give back to the community in which they live and work. Other organizations benefitting from their generosity have been Phillips Wharf Environmental Center, Tilghman Elementary School, and Talbot Watermen Association.
