Dan the Man, delivers Starbucks to patients getting chemotherapy treatments at Michigan Cancer Center every Thursday. Does he work for Starbucks? Nope. Does he have a relative there? Not anymore. So why would this man spend his money to buy people he doesn't even know drinks at Starbucks? Well, a few years ago he found himself bringing his father to the MCI for chemo treatments. One afternoon as he looked around he got the idea to go and buy everyone that was getting treatment a drink of their choice at the Starbucks down the road. Dan’s father has since passed but in his honor he keeps the tradition every Thursday and comes to Starbucks and places his order. After 3 years of people asking about why this man buys so many drinks, a custom Starbucks card was made with "Dan's Coffee Run" on it for anyone who would like to donate money that will go directly to purchasing drinks for the patients of MCI.
