The Mattress Firm Foundation is moving a little closer to putting pancreatic cancer to bed…26.2 miles closer. On January 13, Solomon Kandie will run the Chevron Houston Marathon representing the Mattress Firm Foundation and Mattress Firm employees will be there to cheer for him along on the way.
Solomon Kandie is originally from Nairobi, Kenya. He attended Tulane University, where he earned several honors including Conference USA Athlete of the Year and Conference USA Runner of the Year. He recently completed the Duke City Marathon with a time of 2:24:03.
The Mattress Firm franchise in Albuquerque has sponsored Solomon to help him fulfill his dream of running the Boston Marathon. And we’re proud to say that Solomon is helping the Mattress Firm Foundation achieve its dream of finding a cure for pancreatic cancer.
