PURPOSE: To celebrate the life of Daniel Adam Mize, an avid fisherman, amazing friend and loving family member, and to raise awareness of the great cost of kidney disease to our local families. Daniel Adam Mize fought a valiant battle to live a passionate life despite suffering kidney failure at just 17 years old. Over the next twelve years, he profoundly touched the hearts of so many. On July 10, 2017, our sweet Daniel left us and took his place in heaven, no longer wheelchair bound or in pain. He will never be forgotten. Unfortunately, there are still families and friends facing losing their precious loved ones. There is an amazing young woman from our county facing that same pain and those same challenges that Daniel bravely endured. Kayla Chambers is just 24 years old and desperately in need of a kidney transplant. The money raised in honor of Daniel will go to help Kayla cover her current medical expenses, the dialysis and calcium infusions she must have each week to survive, and hopefully, with your generosity, we will be able to help cover the anti-rejection medicine she needs when a kidney becomes available. Won't you help us to make Kayla's journey easier?
What you can do to help? We need sponsors to help cover the costs for this event. Any donation is greatly appreciated by the family of Daniel Mize, his friends organizing this event, and the family of the young woman to whom these funds will go. We need to cover the costs of water stations, tents, etc. (Please see the attached page for costs.) If your company would like to sign up to run that would amazing as well!) To donate: Please contact the numbers below. You may very well help to save a life while also getting great advertising for your company on a low scale budget. Thank you from all of us and from Daniel and Kayla.
