Brian Guthrie's latest update for Rise

Sep 29, 2017

Greetings to you all.

Extra Life 2017 is almost upon us and I wanted to send an update out about who I’m supporting this year. Usually, I fundraise through the event for Providence of Anchorage, the hospital that saved my niece when she was born too early.  For this year, I’m changing to support UNM Children’s Hospital and here’s why.

Liam is a handsome, happy two-year-old son who was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (A.L.L.) in April of 2017. His family was turned upside down and changed forever but remain determined to help this little superhero fight and win this battle. Learn more here

I want to help little Liam as much as possible, so I’m supporting UNM as they help treat his cancer. On top of that, his family needs support in other ways.

Please consider helping with even a small donation. Every dollar raised through Extra Life will fund critical treatments, healthcare services, pediatric medical equipment, charitable care and more for my local CMN Hospital.

My personal fundraising goal is $1000 to start (I’ve already cleared my first goal). I would appreciate a gift of any amount. Can you help support my efforts? All donations are collected securely by Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.

I appreciate your time and consideration. I hope I can be supportive of a charitable effort of yours in the future.
