9th annual Kate Walk raises $6,500 for area nonprofits
Roughly 300 people laced up their sneakers on Sept. 29 to pay tribute to Kate Bratcher, a longtime Tullahoma teacher who refused to let breast cancer keep her from the sport she loved. After breast cancer claimed Bratcher’s life in 2009 – just a day after her 49th birthday her friends and family members came together and decided to work through their grief by doing some good in her honor. Bratcher was a teacher in the Tullahoma school system for more than 25 years. Throughout her career, she also coached many youth sports and touched the lives of many children. Bratcher loved physical activity, and ran 3 miles every day. She was first diagnosed with breast cancer in 1992. Through treatment her cancer was pushed into remission in 2001 and again in 2003.  Even while going through treatment, Bratcher was determined to stay active. She still completed her 3 miles a day, walking instead of running when she need to, according to her children, Diane Murray and Jimmy Bratcher. While her run with cancer was long, she never allowed it to take her fight or her spirit.
