Maple Valley resident Bob Satko is preparing to run 250 miles to raise money for his grandson, Blake Robison, and the Fanconi Anemia Research Fund. Last year Blake was diagnosed with Fancomi Anemia, an uncommon blood disease that can turn into bone marrow and certain cancers. Satko is planning this 250 mile feat for the Pigtails Challenge, which he had run in 2012.
Satko had finished Pigtails, actually a 200 mile run, by making a visit to the hospital; he had acquired blisters and run the skin off his feet. “This year I will be much more careful,” he said. For this year’s Pigtails Challenge, Satko will run another 50 miles beyond the finish line in support of Blake.

Blisters on the Feet
When tight or ill-fitting footwear is worn, many times a foot blister may develop. Blisters can even develop by constant rubbing from the shoe, often times leading to pain.
What is a Foot Blister?
A foot blister is a small pocket that is filled with fluid, forming on the upper most layer of the skin. Blisters are filled with clear fluid, and may lead to drainage of blood or pus if the area has become infected.
How do they Form?
Blisters of the feet are almost always the result of shoe rubbing and constant friction of the skin and material. Long periods of walking in shoes, sandals, or boots which don’t fit properly can result in a blister. Those who often have moisture or humidity in the feet are prone to blister formation easily.
